Who We Are

The Open Spaces Society is Britain’s oldest national conservation body, founded in 1865.

  • We campaign for stronger protection and opportunities for everyone to enjoy commons, greens and paths.
  • We defend open spaces against loss and pressures from development.
  • We assist local communities so that they can safeguard their green spaces for future generations to enjoy.
