Many traditional greens belonged in the past to the lord of the manor, and some may still do so1; and greens that have that status by virtue of 20 years' use will still belong to the (often private) owner2.
Formerly, recreation allotments under the Inclosure Act 18453 were vested in the churchwardens and overseers of the parish, as were many town or village greens4. The powers, duties and liabilities of the churchwardens and overseers with respect to the holding of greens or of allotments have been transferred to the relevant local authority5.
