Village Green

The Village Green and Playground is located in the centre of the village and is open to everyone.

The Green is managed by a village committee. The committee acts as an advisory body to Colton Parish Council which has overall responsibility for the Village Green.



Village Green facilities include:

  • Separate grassed and tarmacked areas for playing games
  • Slide, swings and wooden climbing obstacles
  • Football / tennis wall for ball games
  • Several benches are dotted around the green if you just want to sit and relax
