Tangshutt Fields is a well used public green space between Cherry Tree and Romiley. It can be accessed either via Tangshutts Lane, off Compstall Road,
Romiley or off Gotherage Lane, Cherry Tree or via public footpath 18 which runs alongside the playing fields off Gotherage Lane and leads towards Hyde Bank Farm, the Peak Forest Canal and beyond. A three metre wide safe route to school with lighting runs through Tangshutt from Gotherage Lane through to Compstall Road, Romiley. The Safe route to school together with public footpath 18 is used by many as part of a popular circular route back into Romiley, including a weekly Health Walk or people have the option of joining the Peak Forest Canal and the footpath network for a longer  walk, run or cycle ride. On the playing field side of Tangshutt there is a children's playground, a multi use games area which includes an all weather tarmac basketball and football area. There is also an outdoor gym and benches. The meadow side is part of Tangshutt Local Nature Reserve which also includes the wooded valley and stream. A Community Orchard is planted around the edge of Tangshutt meadow and also around the playing field side of Tangshutt. The Friends of Tangshutt lead the weekly Health Walk through Tangshutt, starting at Hewitt's Coffee shop, Compstall Road at 10am on Tuesdays and also organise the annual May Day on the Meadow event on Tangshutt Meadow on the first Bank Holiday Monday in May from 12 noon til 3pm. Please note there is no parking on site. When funding is available we also fund free sport and dance sessions for children and young people on the playing field side of Tangshutt, off Gotherage Lane during the Summer holidays.
