Second Home Field looking to A6 by-pass and the bridge over Rothley Brook. May 2008

Date: 1st May 2008

Observers: Marion Vincent and Brian Verity

Location: Field between old A6 and By-pass

OS Ref: SK59151329

Map Title: Site 291

Owners: Not known.

This is one of many fields chopped about by the building of the A6 By-pass thus reducing its size and use. It was meadow at the time of our visit.

It is bordered on one side by a Public Footpath, which then turns to run along a further side and the Rothley Brook from Farnham Bridge on the old A6 under the by-pass.

It could be an interesting piece of meadow if left for hay, especially with the banks of the brook.

It was not necessary to access this field due to the footpath.
