Blagdon Green
Blagdon Green
"Blagdon Green, a triangular field at the top of the village, was anciently the site of the pound, where straying cattle were penned, and the parish saw-pit operated there in the 18th century. The Green was enclosed and sold in 1851, but was still to be regarded as 'a place of Exercise and Recreation for the Inhabitants'" LinkExternal link

The 1.8 acre Blagdon Green was recently bought for the community, mainly through donations from nearby residents, who have helped lay the hedge alongside the road. Taken from footpath T21/74 which runs along the hypotenuse of the triangle.
