I love maps so you’ll have to forgive me for posting these. If anyone can shed light on the Strange Finger please do. I can’t imagine why someone would need or want a field that shape but there must have been a purpose. It may be that it connected with a lane at the top but this has long since gone. A mystery for a land historian.
The 10 acres is divided into 3 fields on a south facing slope of a valley:
Back Field – a big field behind the house and barns with a Strange Finger which creeps up the hill
Triangle Field – across the road, a small field with neat hedges of Blackthorn, Hazel and Sycamore, some people call it the Three Cornered Field
Cow Field – a big field across the road with a straggly hedge down the middle
