Interesting pic worth comparing the block houses with a picture of a cottage built in Peterborough after the Site was closed and sold off, (can't remember where I saw it if I can find a copy I'll post it)
The guy putting food into the oven looks as if he is wearing elevated shoes a bit like Japanese footware I guess it was just a muddy field as the are no signs of footpaths etc so must have got a bit muddy in winter.
Which would have ment loosing anything that might have been dropped an interesting place to use a metal detector which I guess wouldn't be allowed if you look at the site on Google Earth its outline is clearly seen.
Interesting
