FARMLAND
A ring-fenced block of arable land, with a single enclosure of permanent grassland, all of which is shown as being Grade 3 agricultural land on the Ministry of Agriculture Land Classification Sheet. The soil survey of England and Wales identifies the Land as being part of the Denchworth soil series which is described as being slowly permeable, slightly acid but base-rich loamy and clayey soils capable of growing cereals and other combinable crops.

ACCESS
The Land can be accessed via a right of way along the farm track from Hose Lane. The access track, which is marked in blue on the plan enclosed within these details, is to be retained by the Vendor, however a full and free right of access will be granted as part of the transaction over the area shaded blue, subject to shared maintenance responsibilities.

FARM BUILDINGS
The 'Crew Yard' comprises a range of former farm buildings which are currently dilapidated. The site area extends to 0.26 hectares (0.64 acres).

The site may provide the Purchaser with certain planning opportunities, subject to the appropriate planning consents being granted. The planning potential of the site has not been previously explored.

Due to their condition, internal access to the buildings is prohibited when viewing the property.
