The Friends of Manning's Pit
The Friends of Manning's Pit Community Group have led campaigns to save the fields since 2015 - they are now owned by local Charity the Pilton Green Man CIO (Charity no 1170742 ). We now run the management and maintenance of Manning's Pit and organise promotional and fundraising events. These fields have been loved by generations of Pilton, Bradiford and Barnstaple people from the writer H H Munro (Saki) back in the 19th Century to the local community in the present day.
Important news:The Friends of Manning's Pit have been awarded the RAF Community Plate by
Barnstaple Town Council. Read more about this on the Blog.
