SITE 225 SEWELLS CLOSE

This site needs a visit. (Comment made in 2006)

A visit was made on the 26th May 2010 at the time we were recording the Rothley Ancient Temple Survey (RATS) as we start our next stint along one of the boundaries with Rothley Park Golf Course.

The field is currently pasture with free access to cattle from the adjoining fields. It would once have been meadowland but fertilisers have been applied to give a rather barren field when it comes to wildflowers.

There is an interesting track to one side of this field that leads up to Site 212 Church Wardens Land. It has a hedgerow on both sides making it look like a Drove Road. The hedgerow is old with good stumps of hawthorn.
