The property is located just outside the desirable village of Marchington, in the hamlet of Birch Cross just off the B5017. The property is situated approximately 0.7 miles from the village of Marchington and approximately 3.4 miles from the town of Uttoxeter.

The pasture land enjoys two gated access points and is gently south facing in nature. The property is bounded by mature hedgerows and a small compound fenced off to the south eastern corner of the property, currently used for stock handling and storage. The land is classified as Grade 3 under MAFF Agricultural Land Classification scheme and has an acid loamy and clayey soil type. The larger of the two field parcels on the western side has the added benefit of a large well maintained pond in the North West corner which has a pleasant aspect and is fenced off from the field. The smaller field parcel also has a small pond area in the north eastern corner which has not been fenced off from the remainder of the field. Both ponds benefit from being a Registered Fishery.

From Uttoxeter take the A518, following the signs for Marchington (B5017). Continue along the B5017, out of Uttoxeter and into Birch Cross, for approximately 2.8 miles. The track leading to the property is located on the left, as indicated by our ?For Sale' sign, opposite the Blacksmiths Arms pub.
