Hudson's Field

Hudsons Field

About Our Area:

Hudson’s Field is a large open space to the north of Salisbury just below the remains of Old Sarum. The field is used for sports with football and rugby pitches. These are then complemented by the changing facilities offered by the pavilion. The size of the site lends itself well to running, kite flying and land surfing as well as being popular with walkers, picnickers and families.

Hudson’s Field is named after Alderman John Cattell Hudson, Mayor of Salisbury from 1926-27, who left £3,000 in his will towards the purchase of the land. Hudson was a keen advocate of the CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) and had an interest in ancient buildings and monuments and as such wished for the land to be purchased to restrict housing development encroaching on Old Sarum.

The space is used on a regular basis by Salisbury Rugby Club (whose club house is also on the site), Salisbury and District Football League and local cricket clubs.

In addition to traditional sports the area is used for charity events such as Race for Life and Race for Men.

Just above Hudson’s Field is Three Corner Field, popular with dog walkers and has access to Old Sarum. Just south of the main field is the Camping and Caravan site.
