View Over Fields
The field in this photograph is reclaimed, opencast workings. The footpath, from The Five Pits Trail (behind the viewpoint) to Hardstoft Road, heads diagonally across the field toward the hedge coming in from the right hand side of the photograph. At the point where the land rises slightly (and hence the hedge) there is a stile. After the stile the path crosses the corner of another field where it crosses a private farm lane.

Although, superficially well reclaimed land with realistic contours, the ground is poor. Drainage is very limited, the ground is hard and during wet weather, substantial amounts of water sit on the surface causing the top inch or so to be very muddy.

The viewpoint is from near a stile connecting two fields. To see a photograph of the field behind the viewpoint, click here SK4263 : View over fields.

Note that this section of the footpath does not appear on OS maps. Although modern contours have been added to take into account the change resulting from reclamation (late 1960ís Ė early 70ís), the footpath marking hasnít.
