Ten Minutes From Home 2/7

All of the images this week were taken about 10 minutes or so walk from my home during the past few weeks.

South from yesterdays image this is taken from a road that runs along the western edge of Shepshed.  This area consists of farmland for as far as the eye can see.

Hopefully this will not be covered in houses in years and decades to come.

The rocky things look a little like broken bricks, concrete and other items of builders' refuse...has something been knocked down here, Brian?
Brian Walbey: I think someone might have "dumped" those bricks there Ray, there has been some building going on the other side of the road.
I agree, houses and development are the bane of the rural outlook.
The sweet smells of farmland...
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, at least there are no proposals to build pn this land as far as I know.

Seems a shame to lose good agricultural land
Brian Walbey: I think this is all safe for now Tony.

It looks very rural now - but who knows what the futere holds Brian...
Brian Walbey: I suspect that one day these fileds will go Chad but hopefully not for a while yet.
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes, little boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.
Brian Walbey: At least no one has even hinted that this land might be built on Bill, but who knows in a few decades time.

Places on the edges of towns or villages are more likely to be swallowed up for development, so maybe there's hope for this field if it's far enough away.

Brian Walbey: There is an estate on the other side of the road behind me Ingrid, in fact my son and his family live there, but I believe this land is safe for a long time yet.

you have had a little rain,hope this scene remains like this for a long time
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it will vintage, the local councillors would be strung up if they suggested building here I suspect.
A beautiful rural shot Brian. I hope it will stay as is!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I think it is safe for a while yet.
Wellington boots needed I see.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, the puddles add a bit of foreground I feel.
Yes brian..lets hope it stays like it.
Brian Walbey: I think it's o.k.for a while yet Ron.

Yes, it has rained heavily- but you are right in your reply- and the green and the soil may be thankful for the wet, in our country the grounds and gardens are so dry after two weeks sunshine! I like the sharpness of the pic and the touch of some reflecting blue sky- but if I'll stay in England this year I hope to leave my wellies at home!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, and I hope you have to leave your wellies at home, we had enough rain during the summer last year.

Ah! Flooding! Yes, certainly don't want to build houses in areas susceptible to flooding. I'm sure that it must be home to some rare pond life too would should safeguard its existence.
Brian Walbey: There is a nice little stream further down the field, I think they wouldn't even dare propose building here Alan.

Great composition with the puddles in the fore ground. Did you actually walk down the side of the field Brian? richard
Brian Walbey: Hadn't got my muddy field shoes on Richard, but I have walked down that way before.
Hope it's not covered with houses. It would be a pity.
Brian Walbey: I don't think the authorities would dare build on this land at the moment Albert.
