Alverthorpe village green saved



Have your say

A historic village green has been saved after a backlash against plans to bulldoze the site to make way for a housing development.

Wakefield Council has scrapped plans to sell Alverthorpe Village Green to housing developers after hundreds of people signed petitions to protect the site.

The green has been used for village events since the 1800s and was formerly the venue of Alverthorpe Maypole.
