Remember those open spaces


The Open Spaces Society was founded in 1865 and is still extremely active today throughout England and Wales. We campaign to protect and preserve common land, village greens, open spaces and public paths. We are a small charity heavily dependent on legacies and the support of members for our continued existence.

New signposts have recently been erected on public paths around Cheltenham thanks to the farsightedness of a local benefactor, Herbert Lucas Bradbury.

He died in 1959 leaving £1,500 on trust for erecting and maintaining signposts on public paths within a 6 mile radius of Cheltenham post office. This trust has been held and administered by the Open Spaces Society ever since. That is just one example of the way the Open Spaces Society can spend money that is left to it in legacies.

We should be most grateful if you could bear the society in mind when deciding to whom you might wish to leave money in your will. Your gift to the society will help ensure that future generations will enjoy commons, open spaces and paths, in town and country throughout England and Wales.
