Cleared field adjoining the Lon Garret boulder field
Cleared field adjoining the Lon Garret boulder field
The height and thickness of the surrounding walls indicate the amount of stones and boulder cover that had to be removed to create this tiny field. This would have been done by a quarryman-smallholder, with some help from his neighbours in the first half of the 19thC. The absence of bracken infestation clearly shows that the field is still carefully managed and used as an in-by field for sheep.
