AN updated handbook on one of the most popular open spaces in north Bucks is to publish on July 7.
Bury Field, a thousand years of history (WordGo Publishing; £6) will launch at Newport Pagnell’s annual town carnival weekend.
First printed in 2016, WordGo decided to rush out a second edition after hearing that plans were being drawn up for the well-used Common for the next five years.
“In recent months there have been suggestions for turning parts of it over to housing and/or providing extra parking space for shoppers. No one really seemed sure, so we set out to discover what’s really going on,” said publisher Richard Meredith.
“It took a while, but we eventually got a document from DEFRA under the Freedom of Information Act and we are publishing it word for word.”
