The land at Gorthfield extends to approximately 98.02 acres of amenity woodland and permanent grazing land. The land is classified as grade 3.2 on the national scale for land capability by the James Hutton Institute. The land lies between 104 metres and 132 metres above sea level.

Approximately 73 acres were planted with mixed native broadleaf woodland under a grant scheme in 2005. This woodland is well established in areas and there is scope for further planting within some of the enclosures. The planted enclosures feature great biodiversity supporting the growth of native species and wildlife.

The remaining 20 acres is a mixture of permanent pasture and rough grazing. The land has a very useful hard track that runs through it which provides access to the southern parts of the land.

The land provides many opportunities for conservation and leisure projects as well as providing an escape from built up urban areas for the owner. There is significant natural capital value to this land which would contribute to any corporate or private social responsibility strategies. There is potential for peatland restoration and further woodland creation to sequester carbon.

Lot 1

There is a very useful shed in the Northeastern part of the land which measures approximately 70ft x 30ft. This is of steel portal frame construction with timber cladding and corrugated roofing. The interior of the building features recently installed windows and a log burner at one end.

There is approximately 21.55 acres of grazing land which is capable of producing a crop of hay. Approximately 4.44 acres features peat of varying depths with a fairly good coverage of Sphagnum Moss. There may be potential for small scale peatland restoration projects within this lot.
