This public notice requesting information concerning the ownership of the small triangle of land at Greenside was on display in February 2020.

Is this remnant of Greenside common land? There is no common land shown for Walton in the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) database.
Read more about Walton's commons on the History page, 1799, Canals & Common Land.

There is also a campaign to re-open the railway line adjacent to Greenside to passenger traffic. See the Walton Railway Station page.
