Farndon Fields NW corner after heavy rain

360° VR panorama of a large puddle at the end of a ditch in the north-west corner of Farndon Fields, Market Harborough, England. The River Welland runs alongside part of the field, and can sometimes cause flooding of the area.

Farndon Fields is currently under development, and the developers have built a number of flood defences, which seem to have coped well with the April rain so far. The ditch area at the north of the field shown here is probably not complete yet (since it doesn’t go anywhere).

To the north of the field is an embankment that used to carry the Rugby and Stamford Railway line. Currently it is used as pasture for a few farm animals, in this image a couple of bullocks can be seen.

Gate between snow covered fields near East Farndon

360° VR panorama of a gateway between two fields located between Lubenham and East Farndon, Northamptonshire, England. The fields are usually used as cattle pasture, though the cattle had presumably been brought into barns at the time this photo was taken due to the cold weather.

Footprints of walkers and rabbits can be seen in the snow.
