Tur Langton village hall and Merton College, Oxford

Today's news about the extraordinary wealth of Oxford and Cambridge colleges reminded me of the story about Tur Langton village hall I have covered here a couple of times.

In 2012 I reported that Merton College, Oxford, which has considerable landholdings in this part of the world, might not allow the village to take out a new lease on the hall site.

When I visited Tur Langton again in 2016 there was still a banner saying 'Save Our Hall' on display.

The good news, reading the newsletters on the Tur Langton Parish Council website, is that the villagers have now secured a new lease and are improving what was rather an overgrown site.
