Friends of Emery Down
In the summer of 2015 the owners of Emery Down Wood, Aldworth Road (opposite the end of School Lane) placed it up for sale. It was suggested that the village might try to buy it to prevent development and to allow public access. To enable the purchase to take place without complications, a charity 'Friends of Emery Down' (Reg. Charity No. 1162730) was established. Further information on the trustees and the aims of the charity can be found here.
