We love our parks & green spaces here in the parish of
Winsham – they’re perfect for walking, playing, relaxing, taking a bit of time
out… all sorts of things, in fact. At
the moment we have the following parks & green spaces:
Winsham Playing Fields
Lower Recreation Ground
Part of Pooles Lane
Recreation Ground (Coming Soon)
To find out more about each of these spaces keep reading.
You’ll find a little bit about the space, including what there is for you to do
We welcome any ideas you may have for improving our open
spaces. In addition - there are no parks
or open spaces outside of Winsham village, although we welcome any suggestions
or donations of land for community use in the rest of the parish, especially in
the outlying hamlets such as Purtington, and Leigh. Please do get in
touch with us.
Rights of Way –
These are not managed by the Parish Council, but we do keep our eye on these
for Somerset County Council and facilitate maintenance where and when we are
able to. It is the responsibility of the
land owner(s) to ensure that you can transverse the rights of way, and it is your
absolute legal right to use the footpaths, bridleways and the restricted byway
in the parish without obstruction or fear of intimidation - at any time of year
(subject to official restriction).
A full and detailed picture of the rights of way can be seen
on this link. You can also report any issues you encounter
using this online tool (as well as to the Parish Council).
