The location of the above items is shown on the map below. We have already established ownership of the land relating to item 3, but it would be helpful if parishioners could advise me which landowner(s) is/are responsible for the fields in which the other items are located so that we can obtain the necessary agreement to carry out this work. Please contact the Clerk with any information.
