106 BOWLERS FIELD

ACCESSED FROM THE RIDGEWAY AND THE SLANG SITE 103

OS REF SK569126

Date: 25th March 2002

This is a field for winter wheat so good potential for field walking. This is a very stony field in a high point of Rothley so could be some good flints.
There are lovely boundary trees set into a good hedgerow between this field and Site 105 Six Acre Field. These have been recorded as Ancient Trees as they have a girth between 3-4 metres.
This is a lovely part of Rothley.
