136.71 acres (55.32 ha) LAND AND BUILDINGS

Brockhall Farm lies to the North and East of Brockhall Village in the Ribble Valley, within easy reach of the A59 and near to Whalley, Blackburn and Preston. The market town of Clitheroe is only eight miles away. There is a farmhouse and bungalow (NOT INCLUDED IN THE SALE), but the rest of the farmstead now enjoys planning consent for conversion to eight dwellings with garages and garden areas allocated to each unit.

In addition to the farmstead / development site, there is also a total of approximately 135 acres (55ha) of land which is available for sale in lots or as a whole. This comprises 44.9 hectares of good grassland, 5.42 hectares of mixed deciduous woodland and approximately 5 hectares of river bed included in the sale. There is also just over a mile of single bank fishing rights that are available with Lot 6.

All of the land is registered with the Rural Payments Agency and all Entitlements are included within the sale of each lot as appropriate.

Lot One - The Farmstead Building Development 2.1 A - Brockhall Farm was built in connection with Brockhall Hospital which was opened in 1904 and closed in 1992 when the site was redeveloped as a gated community (now Brockhall Village) and Blackburn Rovers training ground which lies on the Southern and Western boundaries of the property. The farm was bought by the current vendors family in 1974 and has been farmed as a dairy and stock farm since then. It is thought that the site has been occupied by a farm since the sixteenth century and perhaps even earlier, but there is no structural evidence of
any such earlier buildings on the site now.

Planning consent to demolish and/or convert a number of the buildings into 8 residential properties along with the construction of a number of garages, parking, gardens and amenity space for each property was obtained from Ribble Valley Borough Council on 27 August 2021.

Full details of the consent are available on the Ribble Valley Borough Council planning portal - Application number 3/2021/0311. Briefly the consent will create eight new dwellings with a total Gross Internal Floor Area of 1,602m2 (17,244 sq ft) plus garages, courtyard and garden areas.

The existing features of the farm buildings have been maintained and celebrated, including internal courtyards, exposed structure and materials, double height spaces and large barn door openings.

Access is via an existing lane from Old Langho Road via the rear of Larkhill Cottages. Mains electricity is connected and drainage will be via a new sewage treatment plant. A new mains water connection will be required.

The Land - Excluding The Farmstead - The holding comprises a total area of approximately 136.68 acres (55.31ha) and is all registered with the Rural Payments Agency. There are approximately 110.9 acres (44.9ha) of good grassland, 13.4 acres (5.42ha) of mixed deciduous woodland and approximately 12.44 acres (5 ha) of river bed included in the sale.

An overage clause will apply to all the land sales - If at anytime in the next 25 years, residential planning consent is granted on any of the land, a 50% uplift payment will be made to the vendors.

We have allocated the land into the following lots. The vendors will consider further splitting of the lots if appropriate.

All sporting rights and mineral rights are included within the sale of each lot. Home to a vast array of wildlife including deer, otters, badgers & bird life including riverside breeds such as Kingfishers, Herons, Sandpipers, Mergansers, Sand Martins and Little Egrets along with many other indigenous bird species.
