Showers building to the south
Having climbed up the steep Lincolm Hill from Shell's farm the land levels out above Shepton Beauchamp. The footpath back to the Recreation Ground crosses this field, this season planted with a cover crop of turnips.
This is a useful, quick germinating, crop helping to prevent soil compaction that can occur in the sandy silt-like loam soil in this area. The plants break up the soil while they are in the ground, like a natural plough. Turnips are an excellent cover crop for farmers who graze livestock on their fields after the main cereal harvest.
