Did you know that the largest village green in England is at Great Bentley in Essex? It covers an area of roughly 43 acres Ė big enough to have been used as a golf course a century or so ago. Old Buckenham in Norfolk disputes the title, its green being 40 acres thus smaller, but some of their Essex rivalís land once having held industrial buildings.
