King George's Fields :: Shared Description

As a memorial to King George V after his death in 1936, a foundation was established to give capital grants to towns and villages for the provision of playing fields: "any open space used for the purpose of outdoor games, sports and pastimes." All sites were to be called 'King George’s Field' and distinguished by heraldic panels that were usually displayed at a specially designed entrance. 471 schemes in the UK received grants from the Foundation. In 1965 the responsibility for establishing and preserving King George's Fields passed to the National Playing Fields Association. LinkExternal link
