The land lies to the north of Edge End and is accessed via a good gated track leading off a council maintained road accessed directly off the A4136.

To the south east of Lot 1 is a farmyard and a range of farm buildings with the two steel framed sheds centred around a part concrete, part hardcore farm yard. The buildings are as follows:

A six bay steel framed cattle shed with Yorkshire board cladding, concrete panel walls, concrete floor and profile sheet roof with one bay having a roller door with access to a workshop, separate WC, wash hand basin, and an office/kitchen (GEA approximately 4,912 sq ft (462 sq m)).

The arable land is divided into five well sized enclosures and has been well managed by the current tenant, actively farmed on an ongoing crop rotation. The majority of the pasture land is along the southern boundary of the lot with an additional singular field located to the west of the arable ground. The main vehicular access into the farm continues past the farm buildings providing access to the land.
