Methwold’s Queen Elizabeth II Recreation Ground

Renamed in June 2013 to celebrate her majesty's 60th Jubilee the Queen Elizabeth II Recreation Ground or “The Rec” has been part of the village for many years. The land is thought to have been the original site of the local Manor House for the parish and sits next to the beautiful St. George’s Church that overlooks it.

Apart from a full size football pitch and playing field in the Spring of 2013 the Children’s play area was completely remodeled to include many more play features. After a lot of work by then parish councillor & parishioner Chris Stone this was funded by the Parish Council and a large grant from the WREN organisation.


The Recreation Ground and St. George’s Hall Car Park are available for hire by individuals and organisations to put on various events including football matches, fetes and the like.

(For further details and costs please contact the council via the clerk)
