The Field of Peace is located between North Stifford Village and the Mardyke River. It’s a great place for a picnic!

Sir Fielding Clarke and Lady Mary Milward Clarke once lived in Coppid Hall.  Sir Fielding died in 1928, and later on the 19th June 1933 his widow donated the land to the elderly of the village.  The name ‘Field of Peace’ derives from her wish that the field should be a place to ‘sit in peace’.

Davy Down and the Field of Peace form part of the Bridleway which runs from Ship Lane, Aveley, to Fen Lane Bulphan; a distance of 4.2 miles.
