13th March 2002 I recorded:
I had previously walked this field with Kathleen Hyman on our first visit earlier in the week. It is planted up with winter wheat and is very stony. It is a small field bordered on two sides by gardens, on another side by a sand pit and the forth by a granite wall. The wall is rather broken down in places but still a very interesting feature.
There are no trees in this field.
FOLLOWING THE DEATH OF KATHLEEN HYMAN IN 2006 THE FARM WILL NO LONGER REMAIN IN THE HYMAN FAMILY. FURTHER INFORMATION AWAITED.
3rd February 2007
Brian and I made a visit to see what happened in the five years since we were last there. The wall that separates this site from Site 108 Bowlers Field is more covered by brambles and other vegetation, showing how history can be visually lost in a short space of time.
There are no trees in this field or on the boundaries, apart from its boundary with the Sand Pit, which has not yet been accessed.
