The Rothley Ancient Ecclesiastical Boundary (RAPS) ran along the boundary with Site 183 North Stocking where it joined up with Gipsy Lane looking towards Mountsorrel. It is not now part of the present parish boundary (2012).

There is a large Oak Tree 361 on the boundary with North Stocking and this is recorded in Site 183.

The 'triangle' is currently used as arable land (2012)

At the start of this stint is an Ancient Oak Tree 361. There is the further remnant of a stump just a short way away.

Most of this stint has no hedgerow but still an excellent ditch. Where there is hedgerow we now see hawthorn and blackthorn and the end of the elm.
