This field is pasture but not grazed as no stock proof boundary. It is constantly used by dog walkers. I have called it Elm Hill Field after Elm Hill Cottage, which is shown on the 1885 map as being on the boundary.

This field has a current Parish Boundary with Mountsorrel and the boundary line is an area of unmanaged tree planting. There is a watercourse running down this boundary so the area is damp. Old maps show a pond, which I need to investigate, as it will now be just a site.

According to an old map this field was originally two divided by a hedgerow shaped like two sides of a triangle. This field shows a good rise in the land.

I must make a return visit later in the year to see what is in the vegetation.
