    I always reckon that 10 times round most fields is a third. however if you Go on www.magic.gov.uk put in your post code and get the field up, then use the measure tab to measure each side, then work out how many times round to get the required sq mtrs

    Or just stop when you think about half is cut
    Smartphones have GPS based apps which are quite good for approximate area measurement.
    I have this one:

    All great help one way or another. I went an looked it up on google maps you do get to view it! Roughly measured the perimeter and converted it to yards it would appear from my calculations it is eight runs round the outside. Im sure its close enough
