This field of poppies was taken from the track through Bulmer brick works. The field very big and full of poppies, but the adjoining field had none. Later, there was lots of fields with a different type of poppy growing in them, for the production of morphine and cooking poppy seeds. The brick works dates back to the middle ages, and the building look that old, but apparently aren’t.  They still hand make bricks there today.

 

 

 

The farm house is the last surviving building at Purton Green. It was built in 1250, and has changed little since.It was derelict, but was restored 50 years ago by Landmark Trust. They let it out for holidays. There is no vehicular access, so wheelbarrows are provided for you to transport your belongings the quarter of a mile from the parking space at the end of the lane.(That’s assuming you can get through the ford to the parking space!).
