"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness" (Keats).... the Common can certainly offer some spectacular mists, if not so much fruit, at this time of year.

We're back! After several months away due to a technical problem, Cleeve Common is back as a Facebook page. We're also up and running on Twitter and getting into gear on Instagram. So find us, like us, follow us - and share what you're doing on the Common. Click the icons in the left sidebar to find us.
Please note that our quarry car park closing time is 8.00pm during the summer. THE GATE WILL BE LOCKED AT THIS TIME. In the autumn when the clocks go back, we will revert to the winter closing time of 5.00pm. Please ensure you move your car before closing time.
The Memorial Programme allows local residents to make a donation in memory of a loved one to fund the conservation of Cleeve Common.

Those making a donation will be able to place a plaque on the Memorial Wall surrounding the Cotswold's highest tree (photo).Read More
