SITE 308 SOUTH FIELD CLOSE

OS REF:SK57951140

There is no public access to this field.

2nd July 2008

This large field was once two fields both having the same name of South Field Close. At the time of our visit it was a corn crop.

There are good hedgerows all around the field but the field pond showing on old maps, which served both fields on the dividing hedgerow is no longer visible due to the dense crop. There might just be evidence if a visit could be made after the crop was gathered and before ploughing.

There are good views from this field of the surrounding countryside.

RATS TEMPLE STINT 23

Part of the boundary of the Rothley Ancient Temple Survey touches on this field:

RATS TEMPLE STINT 23

Date: 19th January 2011

Observers: Brian Verity, Terry Sheppard and Marion Vincent

Location: Accessed from Bridle Road from Rothley to Thurcaston

OS Ref:SK5816011762-SK5806911813

Map Title: Site 308 South Field Close

Owners: Rothley Park Golf Club, Westfield Lane, Rothley

We have called this Stint 23 even though it leads on from Stint 22c. This is because it runs into a ploughed field before turning and heading for the golf course at Fairway 10. There is no evidence of a boundary and therefore nothing to record.
