Located immediately south of the previous lot is a further single field enclosure amounting to around 5.71 acres (2.31ha) in total. The land has had a good crop of Oats harvested this Summer and due to weather conditions the vendor proposes to re-seed this parcel free of charge as soon as conditions allow in Spring.
