The Friends of Manning's Pit
The Friends of Manning's Pit Community Group have led the Save and Buy campaigns since 2015. The Manning's Pit 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.
Volunteers needed on the evenings of the 23rd and 24th of May to help with the clearing of the area by the bridge.
