Friends of Mapledurham Playing Fields

Mapledurham Playing Fields are located in Caversham Heights, just off Upper Woodcote Road. While much of the site is given over to sports facilities, there are areas of rough grassland with wild flower margins as well as a regenerated woodland consisting mainly of field maple, elm and oak. An ancient boundary bank is to be found at the woodland edge. In 2010 a community orchard was planted at the site.

The Friends of group was formed in 1999 and organise monthly tasks generally on the 3rd Saturday of the month from September until April, see Programme for further details.


The Friends undertake a variety of activities to monitor, maintain and enhance the site including small mammal surveys.
