Trap Grounds

13 April. Trap Grounds is an area of scrubland and reed beds between Oxford Canal and the railway line in the northern suburbs of Oxford. In 2004 the Friends of the Trap Grounds fought a lengthy legal battle to stop development on the site - a case which reached the House of Lords - arguing that the site was a Town Green under the Commons Registration Act, which affirms the right of local people to the continued use of unfenced land for recreation when it has been used that way for at least twenty years.
