Community - Hempton Common Lands Charity

Hempton Common Lands Charity

First established in 1808, the charity manages seven acres three rood and eleven poles of land situated in Hempton which is let by the trustees to farmers and the proceeds were to be spent on coal which was distributed to the poor of Hempton. The charity has recently updates its constitution to modernise its goals and is now able to better support parishioners resident in Hempton.
