Laxton Walks

News February 20, 2014

With the new year there comes a new series of public walks around Laxton. These offer a great opportunity to learn more about the unique farming system and its historic Court and Jury which survive on your doorstep from medieval times, having adapted to the demands of the modern world.

Stuart Rose will be leading his first walk of the season from the Visitor Centre beside The Dovecote Inn at 10am on Sunday 9th March. There will be a chance to see the fields after winter and see how the winter wheat and second year cereal crops are progressing. The ground in the third ‘fallow’ field will still be as it was left after the crop was taken off last year. It will soon be broken up to provide habitat for ground nesting creatures such as skylarks and brown hares.

The walk is over tracks and farm land, so robust footwear is essential as is suitable outerwear for the weather. Expect to cover around 4 miles in 3 hours. Please call 07939 228353 for further information.
