    The more I do the less we have to pay someone else which should save some money :scratchhead:

    Plus it means we need a harrow, which means I will then need a tractor for it to go on :clap:

    @Arthur A good show jumper would be better :yes:

    Doing a bit of drainage, the outlet is under an old double ditch it was a mass path.
    Going to be fun trying to clear this out.

    You should have hired Eddie Lenihan to insist on the mass path being preserved, he could have negotiated a zebra crossing on the motorway

    Is the church still standing, there is a field near here known as the church field, its 45 acres or more and has a mound that once had a church, there are stiles on all the surrounding hedges that were part of the mass paths radiating out from where the church once stood, before the potato famine there were probably a lot of families living in this field in their small plots in the days of hedge schools.

    Only really old churches around here would C of I churches taken during penal times.
    The church served by this is newer, but like most Christian churches on these islands ministers/ priests are in terminal decline followed by worshippers, the churches are very plentiful.

    There's a mass path going through our farm leading back to the famine times, there are gates and or stiles between the next farms which have never been interfered with or won't be either. Nice to have a reminder of times long past when life was so much tougher and many legs crossed these stiles.

    Mass path here as well, not sure whether it was leading to the nearest village or just to the main road. We have a couple of stiles as a result too. Semi restored one and use it to access the field when herding.

    They are a forgotten part of our past really.
