Two friends out for an afternoon ride around the village

Two Field is a small community of some 50 households situated at the far end of Patentia on the West Bank Demerara. These homeowners were randomly selected by the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) after many years of dedicated service at the Wales Sugar Estate.

According to residents, sometime in 1995 the names of workers with the required amount of years of unbroken service at the estate were put into a bag, shuffled and selected. Afterwards two sugarcane fields were reclaimed and restructured into a housing settlement, hence the name of the village.

To get to the community, one stops off at the bridge opposite the Patentia Nursery School, walks to the fourth street and turns left. A broad bridge leads into two villages: Skull City on the left and Two Field on the right. Two Field has three streets running horizontally; Third Street being the one closer to the access to the village and First Street, near the canefields…..
