A lot has changed in the last year or two on one of Harry’s old dog walks. (I once did a blog called harrydogblog.com featuring Harry.)
Walking along the ridge of the dog walking field, next to Masefield Recreation Ground, the new houses of Morland Gardens can be seen down below.
Another development can also be seen over the fields. The new houses of Walnut Meadow are now visible as the distance between Abingdon and Drayton shrinks.
The first houses of Walnut Meadow, already with people in, stand alongside the bridleway that leads from Mill Road in Abingdon to Drayton.
There are also houses starting to grow next to the farm track that forms a circular walk back to Abingdon.
Looking at the Walnut Meadow development plans I see there is a large space for future sports pitches and a pavilion. Drayton are getting something of community value from their development.
