Hearn Field is a beautiful, six and a half acre piece of land on the banks of the River Teign, named after local farmer and landowner Percy Hearn who bequeathed it upon his death in 1983 “for the enjoyment of the Parishoners of Haccombe-with-Combe”.
The field is freely accessible all year round and is very popular with families and dog walkers. It enjoys a well appointed pavilion which has a large reception area, ideal for parties or meetings, in addition to a small kitchen area, a separate bar area, changing rooms and showers sufficient for two sports teams for cricket or football matches.
A bonfire and firework party is held annually over the spectacular backdrop of the River Teign, and a family fun day held every summer, in addition to various one off events including music festivals, dog shows, outdoor theatre productions, outdoor film screenings and the Combe Village Show.
The management of the field comes under the auspices of Parish Council and the maintenance and upkeep of the field is managed by a group of volunteers. If you would be interested in joining, or helping out at any particular event, please feel free to contact Liz Deane at email@example.com.
