No More Field


As I was in my home town, I went to look at the field I mentioned last month to see how it was these days.

Hmm. So, it's not the wasteland it was 50 years ago. There are houses everywhere and gardens stretching down almost all the way to the stream dyke. I had to take this photograph by holding my camera above a fence that now runs alongside the viaduct.

The fence isn't pretty, but someone has planted marigolds along its length and those are pretty.

As for what the field used to look like, well a piece of land the other side of the Stream Dyke that used to be nicely mowed has now been left to run wild, and presents a reasonable approximation.

I expect this will be the new field for those children of today whose parents allow them to be children.
