Rush Common (also known as Rushey Common)

Introduction

Rush Common today is a series of landscaped areas with grass, paths and trees, with a Tree Trail marked out in the south. A number of old trees may predate the 1810 enclosure. There are areas of private gardens that form part of the linear landscape, including those for residents of Tudor Close and Raleigh Gardens.
