The village hall has a large grassed field to one side bounded by a hedgerow. It is approximately square and 70 metres across. We keep this space tidy as a general play area for local children to use. It is also used regularly in the summer by youth groups for outdoor activities. There is also a picnic bench, football goals and table tennis table.
The field is large enough to accommodate a marquee to support events such as wedding receptions in the hall (special fee applies).
The field also contains a bowls green within a fenced off area, which is the home of Houghton Bowls Club. (click on the link to visit the Bowls Club’s own web site).
