How about......erm erm... I've no idea

Could you sketch it out on graph paper and then take measurements of the overall plot size and the wonky bits. Then re draw it to scale on more graph paper.

I thought the above made sense when I thought of it, now I've re read it I'm not so sure.

I was thinking graph paper too, just thought there might be a simpler method

Get someone else to do it...that's simple, probably expensive though.

It was just some initial calc's I wanted to do, once it gets serious I'll go to a professional

Another thought, is it possible to get hold of a copy of the land registry drawings, they may be to scale.

Where from? I've got rough drawings which are on a scale of 1:2500, i just want to be able to see how big particular areas of the plot are.

There is a programme called Arcview that is pretty simple to use - its mapping software. I have a copy and the instructions if you want to give it a go.

Try this site

I know our solictior once got hold of the land registry drawings to help with a problem on who owned a small lane and they also used it to determine the dimensions also.

They haven't got the data for our property online, currently downloading next doors though, just to be nosy.

Ordance Survey maps are usually available in the library. Is the land registered at all? Even if you are not planning on claiming the Single Farm Payment, it would be a good idea to register your land on the Rural Land Register: RPA

It's not mine yet. So do you think i should register for the payment? and what's the benefit of registering with the RPA?

(Sorry, lots of questions I know)

By the way thanks Fullup, just downloaded a map of next doors with all our fields and acreages listed.

As it says on the RPA site:

"The development of the RLR is benefiting customers by providing each applicant with an accurate and up to date map of their holding, as well as simplifying the application process and streamlining claims processing."

So, if ever you do decide you'd like to make a claim, it will be a lot easier if you have registered it now, than if you choose to register it at the time. I'm thinking more of the environmental schemes, as if you are managing the land with the environment in mind & possibly doing up features such as hedgerows, ponds and fences, you may find the extra payments useful. Also, you get some decent maps

Brilliant, we'll definitely be re-instating plenty of hedgerow
