Welcome to Thorley Wedge.

Concrete area with goal posts for a kickabout.
Thorley Wedge is a 9.39 hectare corridor of open space running from Friedburg Avenue to Thorley Hill. The open space consists mainly of amenity cut grassland with a scattering of trees along its length. At the eastern end of the site there is an area of mixed woodland and some old oaks, hazel, field maple, ash and blackthorn scrub. Woodland management is undertaken to maintain the woodland for wildlife and people. Thinning and coppicing the woodland on rotation – cutting trees down to ground level and allowing them to regrow – allows more light to reach the woodland floor benefiting the ground flora and creating a more diverse structure to the woodland.
There is a well-used surfaced path that runs along the southern site and leads to Bishops Stortford town centre, passing the Thorley Centre on the way which has various amenities including a supermarket, pub and doctors surgery. There are two children’s play areas, one near the Thorley Centre, the other at Lower Park Crescent with a basketball hoop and goals for informal kickabouts.
