As most people will have done, I zoomed out a bit to find out where this was in the world. Imagine my amazement when I find it to be no more than 2/3 miles from where I live!!

Zoom out about 5 times, click hybrid, and you see that yellow road under the label Darfield, I live on that road!

Of all the fields in all the world......

If I get time at the weekend I might take a quick look, but as pd says, I doubt it will still be there as the sat images are quite old looking around my area on GMaps...

Hehe, Looking closer, I think there must have been a field artist in the area at the time, take a look a little south west from the original location on the map, and you'll find this...

maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q& ...

Weird, I'm gonna have to start researching this now, see if there are any news stories about it in the local papers....
