Introducing: Piglittle Field, a SANG for Amen Corner

Neighbourhood News

Bellway is pleased to announce that development works for the new Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space are progressing as planned.  Named Piglittle Field – the ‘not-so-little’ recreational ground is an impressive 10 hectares of restored Berkshire countryside on the doorstep of Amen Corner.

Piglittle Field is being created for public access – with responsible dog walkers welcome all year round. The semi-natural habitats have also been developed with wildlife in mind, with thousands of native species trees introduced to form a welcoming habitat for woodland animals.

Visitors can stroll around the clearly marked, 1.4 mile circular walk route, with a gravel path travelling around the new pond and extensive meadow, which bursts with wildflowers in the summer. Or there is the woodland trail to explore, which weaves its way through the ancient coppice woodland known as Piglittle Copse. In the spring, the floor is covered by a blanket of bluebells.

If a longer walk is what you’re looking for, you can take advantage of the footpath link northwards to Binfield village. Pope’s Meadow Local Wildlife Site, another great place for walks in a natural setting, lies about 0.5 miles north-east along the footpath. From here, you can join the Bracknell Forest Ramblers Route, a 26 mile walk around the borough.

Residents of Amen Corner can look forward to embracing this fabulous new outdoor space in the not too distant future.

Zoe Dobbs, Sales Manager at Bellway Homes North London, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our residents this wonderful green space. The aim is to provide a recreational natural environment that can be enjoyed by visitors, visitors and of course the local wildlife. Luscious outdoor areas are one of the key aspects of village life and we’re very confident that Piglittle Field will prove to be a vibrant addition for the Amen Corner community.”
