Around 3% of the land area of England is recognised as common land. On this website you will find a maintained and searchable database of registered parcels of common land in England.
Search by village or parish name, or find all common land in a specific county. You can also list types of common land, as well as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Sites of Special Scientific Interest.
The website contains land records for nearly all parcels of registered common land in England, with additional data including location, area, extent of rights etc. The information was assembled between 1982 and 1993 as part of the biological survey of common land
The data powering the database is sourced from the government's DEFRA website. For information about UK Government property and land visit government buildings. For details about social housing visit uksocialhousing.com.
Town and village greens originate in customary law, where long-standing recreational use of land by the local inhabitants came to be recognised and protected by the courts. Greens are areas of land where local people have for many years indulged in lawful sports and pastimes, which might include organised or informal games, picnics, fetes, dog walking and similar activities. A green can be in private ownership but many greens are owned or maintained by town and parish councils.
