New gates, fences, paths. And no more rusty metal.
In March 2016 we took ownership of the field and started down a long road of restoration with the aim creating a natural wildlife haven based on a traditional English meadow.
Intensive farming creates a desert-like landscape devoid of wildlife. Fortunately the field was soon afterwards abandoned to nature.
Showing the croft (No. 318), with almost exactly the same boundaries as today. Occupied by a Mr Richard Tipton, hence ‘Tipton’s Croft’.
