*Update 11th Nov 2021: We’ve heard that this nice little greenspace has suffered from recent vandalism and graffiti. The council have been informed and are making the necessary repairs.

The field has had a chequered history. Once a rubbish tip and before that an allotment. Not the kind where vegetables are grown, but a fuel allotment set aside for the benefit of the poor, somewhere for local people to collect firewood. Now a lovely open space for Ascot.

And if you were wondering who Allen was? There were two of them! George Allen was Clerk to Windsor Rural District Council, and his wife was Clerk to the Parish Council and the Fuel Allotment Trust, in the 1960s and 70s.
