|The remains of Newfarm
To the west of the Chalk Trail
Correctly marked on the map as a ruin, hidden in the woodland behind an old yew tree, is the remains of an old, isolated smallholding, which fell into disuse about 50 years ago. The surrounding woodland - Newfarm Plantation - is named after this farm. There are some yews, and signs of past inhabitants, but it won't be long before the crumbling walls disappear beneath the moss and ferns.
