Parks

TreeEaston Park Wood in the southern extremity of the parish is an ancient woodland of oak, birch, beech and hazel trees.

The park was created by John de Drokensford in the latter part of the 13th century, when he obtained a licence to combine land under his ownershiphip known as Horseley wood with other land adjoining the wood. Once established, the keeper of Breamore was ordered to give John de Drokensford two live bucks and six live does as a gift from the king to stock his park.

Village Greens

Village GreenThe most distinctive open area of Ashmansworth is the main village green, with its centrally located hornbeam tree.  It is a modestly sized green, bounded on two sides by mature hedgerows, with open aspects to the remaining boundaries.

There is also a second green at the site of the war memorial.

Both areas feature a seat for people to rest and take in the views.
