Last View of Chase Farm

North towards Chase Farm

Above is one of the final of the set of photos taken May 8, 2017, within the edge of a stand of wild trees looking north-west towards the ruins of Chase Farm. It is close to a ridge of high ground which runs from Nottingham (to the South-West) towards the North-East, which is on the other side of the Farm, and which today is called Mapperley Plains. Only 150 years ago it was full of trees and was called “Sherwood Forest” (yes, that Sherwood Forest), was originally owned by the King and renowned for The Chase.

I’ve finally added all the stuff I surveyed back in 2017 to the map, and will very soon be free to begin mapping again after a gap of 2 years. The bypass whose development you can just see on the LHS is one of the things that needs mapping.

Hope you like the photo.

Location: Arnold and Carlton, Gedling, Nottinghamshire, East Midlands, England, United Kingdom
