New Thriplow Farms maps available – very exciting!

OK, I think this is pretty cool. I’ve just added a couple of new pages to the website, if you’re on it now you will be able to see them on the top menu. I should point out though that they will only really be of interest to people who live around here, or those that like pretty pictures.

What’s in that field?

I know that quite often people are walking around the farm and wonder what a particular crop is; this is especially true when there’s something unusual like a cover crop growing. So what I’ve done is create a custom interactive map, that allows you to see all our fields, and bring up their details by clicking on them. If you open it up on a phone then it will even show you where you are on the map at the same time.

Walking

The second new page is a similar concept, but instead of showing what is growing in each field, it shows on a different map where people can go walking on the farm. Some are public footpaths, some are permissive access routes, and some are just plain old farm tracks (that have been open to the public since the ’70s).

  1. This is most interesting and informative, well done! I shall put a link in the Thriplow Journal so that members can see it too.

    As a Local History Society, the Thriplow Society’s remit is to record the past and present for the future and this is just the sort of thing that people 50 years from now will find interestin.

    Many thanks,

    • That’s fine, I’m glad you like it. The only thing to be aware of is that the map will change every year to reflect what is currently there. If you would like, I can send you the cropping records from the last couple of decades?
