Help Find Our Lost Playing Fields

The Carnegie UK Trust and Fields in Trust recently launched their new #FieldFinders campaign to find the UK’s lost playing fields in the hopes that you will be able to help.

Between 1927 and 1935 the Carnegie UK Trust gave grants worth £200,000 – the equivalent of around £10 million today – to create nearly 900 playing fields across the UK. These grants were given to local councils and community groups and a key condition of the grants was that the newly created playing fields were to be protected in perpetuity.

However, the precise location of these playing fields was not always recorded. Now, the Carnegie UK Trust and Fields in Trust have launched a new campaign to find the missing playing fields and ensure that they remain protected for local communities to enjoy today and in the future.

The #FieldFinders campaign page has an easy to complete online form where anyone who has any extra information about a potential Carnegie playing field in their area can share it with the Carnegie Trust.

There are development prizes of £5,000 each up for grabs for these identified protected fields.
