Allens Field

Located in Liddel Way, South Ascot, Allens Field covers 9.5 hectares and is owned by the Sunninghill Fuel Allotment Trust.

Since 2009 the site has been managed by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead in partnership with Sunninghill and Ascot Parish Council.

Until the early 20th century the site was part of a large marshy wooded area known as Sunninghill bog. In the mid 20th century the central part of the site was used as a household refuse tip, this was capped off in the 1960s, and the site became a public open space in the late 1970s.

The site was named after George Allen who was once clerk to Windsor Rural District Council, and his wife was clerk to the Parish Council and also to the Fuel Allotment Trust.

Allens Field is designated a local wildlife site and a range of birds, insects, mammals and fungi can be seen here.

The woodland is especially valuable for wildlife and the grassland also has some interesting plants.
