Friends of Linear Park

The Linear Park is a beautiful area of grassland and woodland stretching almost from the M4 in the west, south of the Beansheaf and Fords Farm estates, right along past Calcot Mill as far as the Burghfield Road, with the Holy Brook winding through it.  There are two distinct areas often referred to as West or East and sometimes the Beansheaf and Fords Farm sides.

There are entrances from many of the roads south of Charrington Road/Pollards Way and from Mill Lane and roads south of Carters Rise and as far as Burghfield Road, as well as the main entrance in Charrington Road and it is a beautiful place in which to walk, take children to the playgrounds, play cricket and football, and watch the many species of wildlife.

We have a small but active Committee who organise both work and fun activities within the park (see Up Coming Events).

As ever, we welcome your comments, questions and observations either through the Parish Office or e-mail: folpcalcot@gmail.com
