Feilding is very progressive satellite town that is only 15k from the City of Palmerston North. In the distant future fielding and Palmerston will join. That said it is clear Feildingites are an independent community that for the most part would exist without big brother.

Feilding is an attractive town with gardens monuments that are well kept and in pristine condition.

The town is a service town for the surrounding farming district. The Manawatu Plains, on which the town is sited, are very fertile land, and as such it is a prosperous agricultural area.

Feilding has won the annual New Zealands Most Beautiful Town award 14 times and is testimony to the pride of the population.

The town was named after Colonel William Feilding, a director of the Emigrants and Colonists Aid Corporation Ltd. who negotiated the purchase of a 100,000 acre (400 kmē) block of land from the Wellington provincial government in 1871. The first settlers arrived from Great Britain in 1874.

The War Memorial, the Feilding Hotel and the Museum are all located by the town square.

The Featured Anglican Church is about 1km from the town centre.

Allow half a day at least to delight in what Feilding has to offer.
