    I returned from working abroad recently to find the two fields between the kyd brook and the railway lines by the Goshill road entrance to the Hawkwood estate have been fenced off. Can you explain why this has been done please?

      Hello Richard. The farmer at Hawkwood has fenced these fields in – the eastern-most field in the last few months, but the western field has been fenced for some years now. I gather that, in addition to his usual annual hay cut he will be grazing them, hence the fence. Thanks, Sam

    A shame however if they’re leased or owned by him then its entirely his business. Thank you for the reply.
