The UK's most popular field names


I visited a new client earlier this week and as we were recording his details, the second field on his list was named 'Barn Field'. He noted that we probably have a lot of fields on our system by that name, which got me thinking about the names I've come across in the past.

Over 200,000 fields in our database provide some unique insights to help inform our advice to customers. We can also run quick searches on simple data like field name, so I spoke to one of the tech wizards back at the SOYL office who quickly did some magic and came back with the top ten:

​Field Name ​No. of fields
Big Field​ ​320
​Barn Field​282
Long Field​239​
Pond Field​222​
Middle Field​221​
​Home Field217​
​Front Field200​

Not really any surprises there, though I might have expected to see Barn Field come out on top. The system also told us that the largest field we work with is a huge 132 hectares!

The chart below represents the most popular names in our system; the larger the bubble, the more fields with that name.
