The final crop of wheat in Wisbech
The final crop of wheat in Wisbech
This field on Barton Road, Wisbech belongs to The National Trust and is part of the Peckover Estate. Its historical name is Small Meadow Field. It has been farmed by 3 generations of the Humphrey family and presumably farmed by others before them. However, this stubble field is soon to be ploughed and seeded with grass to create new playing fields for the adjoining private grammar school, thanks to the current benevolent tenant agreeing to give up his tenancy. It makes a change to the current trend of selling off playing fields for development. To see the last 3 tenants see LinkExternal link LinkExternal link LinkExternal link
