Finding Carnegie Playing Fields

Welcome, #FieldFinders

88 years ago the Carnegie UK Trust gave the equivalent of £10million to help us create, protect and improve playing fields. Today, you are helping us bring the records on these fields up to date. We have already done some of the legwork with a pilot project. Read more about the pilot here. Read more about the fields we have found here

Thank you for your hard work - we've had a whopping 152 responses about possible Carnegie fields which is fantastic.

And the initial indications are that we have located more Carnegie Playing Fields across the UK. Due to the high level of response it has taken longer than expected to work through and research all of the information provided.   We are now in communication with various landowners about improving the protection of the identified Carnegie Playing Fields with a view to awarding the two improvement grants thereafter.  A further update and final report will follow shortly.
