Another sunny day with snow. The snow reminded me of the rippled sand as the tide goes out. This is the view from the field south of Masefield Crescent, looking towards the new Morland Gardens development in South Abingdon. The field (or possibly the adjoining field ) got a mention in a recent Town Council meeting as being a possibility for the new cemetery – subject to the Vale of White Horse District Council giving or selling the land, and access and ground being OK.
The field slopes gently from a ploughed farm field to the Drayton Road. About twenty years ago the field was designated an open access field where people could walk. The grass is cut in June to make hay, and people walk their dogs all the way round, or across the top.
