Parish Fields

Field names and Field Book 2000 to present

One of the first projects of the group following a request from Great Bowden Parish Council was to establish present field names and also the name of the landowner and farmer for each field within the parish and to record this information on a large hand drawn map. 

A Field Book was started and all information about the history of each field was recorded.  This is kept up to date whenever new information is received.

The book contains collected information about the history of the field and any older field names.  Details of any archaeological or survey work undertaken by the Heritage Group are also included.
