Village Allotments
Located on Church Glebe land in Cuddesdon Road, these are administered on behalf of the Oxford Diocese by Sidleys Chartered Surveyors.
Horspath Parish Council wishes to encourage villagers to take up allotments, so if you are interested, please contact the Horspath Webmaster at webmaster@horspath.org.uk. See the Horspath Allotments Association web pages.

Village Green
Horspath is proud of its Village Green in the centre of the village. The area comprising the Green was originally Common Land, but was registered to Horspath Parish Council in December 1979. However, it was considered to be administered by the Parish Council before 1976. In April 1976 the Government Home Office confirmed the Byelaws made by the Parish Council in respect of the Village Green. The small grass and gravel area to the south of St. Giles Church, today used as a car park, was originally the site of the Village Pond, and this area is still part of the Village Green. In the Spring, the Green is a blaze of daffodils. At Christmas time the Green is the location for the Village Christmas Tree. View a map of the Village Green showing the legal area registered in 1979, and read the Byelaws in force since April 1976, or download the PDF version (14Kb).
