Green Crescent today

This footpath was a lovely stroll
Through meadows grown for hay,
And it is hard to picture it
When walking there today.
Woodland straggled down the hill,
(A poacher's dream come true),
And lovely was the hillside walk
But better still the view.

This area was all farmland, possibly belonging to what was once Highfield Farm at the top of Juniper Lane (later Juniper Farm). It was built on in the 1950s and 1960s.
