Description - The land comprises 23.33 acres or thereabouts of arable land split between two enclosures and currently down to arable cropping and grass leys. The land is predominantly flat and well suited to modern agricultural farming practices or equestrian use. According to the Agricultural Land Classification maps provided by DEFRA the land is designated as Grade III and the LandIS Soil Series Plans indicate the soil is 'slowly permeable seasonally wet slightly acid but base-rich loamy and clayey'.

2014: Winter Barley
2015: Winter Oilseed Rape
2016: Winter Wheat
In the event that the Lots are sold separately, a right of way for access will be reserved over Lot 1 for the benefit of Lot 2.
Lot 2 is available at a Guide Price of £128,000.
