Despite only living a couple of miles away I'd never heard of High Ash Farm until I stumbled across the reviews here. I'm so pleased I did! I'm a complete townie so I'm afraid I don't know the names of most of what I saw but several species of bird, butterflies, dragonflies, horses and a very cheerful farmer waving from his tractor as he baled up hay. As previous people have said, the paths are beautifully kept and there are so many thoughtful little touches, from the information boards to the artfully carved seating made from fallen trees. I have to admit I had a lump in my throat at the thought of someone going to so much trouble to provide such joy for everyone with no thought of financial gain. I arrived stressed to the gills with a two day old headache and realised half way round that the headache had gone and I was smiling. The perfect antidote to modern life. I didn't find the Roman town but there seemed to be several areas around the farm walks where parking was possible on the grass verge.

Thanks for such a wonderful review. Comments like this are exactly why I have done this with the farm and opened parts up to the public. I appreciate living here every day and I am really pleased you enjoyed your visit.

Come again soon! The roman town is also a really nice walk, you can find it along the Stoke road about 1/2 mile past caistor hall.
