SITE 221 NORTH EAST BROOKFIELD AND BROOKFIELD FARM

OS REF:SK58551243

Date: March 2010

This site covers Brookfield Farmhouse and Barns and the field with a boundary to Hallfields Lane and Rothley Brook

We still have to visit this site. Part of the hedgerows are to be recorded as they are within the Rothley Ancient Temple Survey (RATS) and this is the next part of the survey.

Details of the Ancient Temple Survey can be found in Site 219 Long Field, part of Brookfield Farm.
