The Common, Yate

The Common - An open space in Yate

At 124 acres, The Common is the largest piece of open land in Yate and is ideal for walking, cycling and kite flying.

Prisoner of War Camp

At one time, a Prisoner of War encampment was located there, giving rise to the local name, “The Germans’ Field.” Much of the land was flattened in the Second World War. More latterly, the land has been used for grazing.

At the present time, there is a Friends of The Common Group. For more information, please contact Linda James, Chair of The Friends of The Common, on 01454 319008 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
