Location
The village of Wigmore has a range of local amenities to include a village shop, pub, primary school and secondary school. The local market town of Leominster has more extensive facilities
and The Cathedral City of Hereford, 21 miles away, provides a sophisticated range of shops, restaurants and amenities and has a rail service to London Paddington. The area is well catered for in terms of schools with Moor Park at Ludlow, Cheltenham Ladies College, Cheltenham College, Alice Otley, Malvern College and Hereford Cathedral school being within easy reach.

The Property
Wigmore Castle is believed to date back to 921AD and offers a rare opportunity to purchase an important historic castle ruin that is in the guardianship of the Secretary of State (English Heritage and thus the new owner would have no liability for the repairs to the castle itself). Wigmore Castle is set in approximately 32 acres and includes a moat, woodland, a jousting field, workshop and orchards. From the castle orchard which historically had a fishpond at its lowest point, there is a rising track through woodland to the lowest point of the Jousting Field. A second track passes through two gates and passes the defensive ditch. The second gates define the `Guardianship` area and includes the moat and the castle ruins. The track to the left then completes one circuit of Wigmore Castle.

Services
Mains electric and water are supplied to the site.

Wayleaves and Rights of Way
The property is offered for sale subject to and with the benefit of all rights of way either public or private, all easements, wayleaves, and other rights of way whether they are specifically referred to or not.

Planning
Wigmore Castle is Grade I listed. The property is sold subject to any development plans, tree preservation orders, ancient monument orders, town planning schedules or resolutions which
may be or may come into force.

Sporting, Timber and Mineral Rights
All sporting rights, standing timber and minerals in so far as they are owned are included in the freehold sale.
