Sapley Lane Playing Field

Overton Parish Council Sapley Lane Playing Field

Sapley Lane Playing Field is situated at the southern end of the village and is accessed by foot from Sapley Lane. There is a small car park.  The recreation ground was purchased by Overton Parish Council from Portals Property Ltd in 2002 and was originally used as a football field but although there are still goal posts, it is now only used for a casual kick around.

In May 2003, a skateboard park and basketball post was installed at the southern end of the playing field.  For the safe use of the park, the following rules should be observed:
