King George V field
Hagg Field up for sale
In May 1937 the Joint Treasurers of the Patterdale Parish Council launched a public appeal, urging the public to buy ‘one of the most beautiful fields in the whole country…to enable the Cricket and Football clubs and the Sheep Dog Trials to continue their activities as hitherto’
The Hagg Field, as it was then known, was to be sold as one of the lots in the sale of the Patterdale Hall Estate in 1937.
Hagg Field bought by public subscription
The Public Appeal was successful. Hagg Field was bought by Public Subscription for £750.
