Smallholding, South Leaze Lane
Smallholding, South Leaze Lane
This smallholding near the junction of South Leaze Lane and Wharf Road is here seen from the footbridge over the motorway. Formerly, the lane continued over the bridge and, though gated, could be used by vehicles. The curved fence and rough patch of grass to its right indicate approximately where the old road used to lead up to the bridge before it was rebuilt. Now, the footpath follows a dogleg in front of the trees to the right of the picture in order to access the new, higher footbridge. This change is probably part of the wider plan to build houses to the north-east of South Leaze Farm and continue the road from Wichelstowe to Wootton Bassett, which will cut across South Leaze Lane near the railway. Little farming seems to be taking place at this smallholding, apart from the raising of a few chickens under the trees to the right.
