An attractive and accessible one-day grouse moor

Description

Sand Edge Moor extends to approximately 689 acres, of which 154 acres are freehold owned land, with the balance being freehold sporting rights over Sand Edge Common, comprising 534 acres.

This very accessible moor has been within the family’s ownership for a considerable time and has been managed as part of a wider family sporting estate. There has been a significant improvement in the moor’s fortunes in recent years which has demonstrated its potential. The sporting rights are currently let to the vendor’s brother and the ground is keepered as part of a wider estate.

There are three rows of butts on the moor which provides for a compact yet interesting day’s sport. The drives are shown on the plan with directional arrows which are a return drive in butts, a return drive to a wall and a single drive to a row of wall butts. Through the centre of the moors runs a former railway which is freehold owned allowing scope for creating an integral access road.

The vegetation on the moor provides a mix of sward length and a recent increase in burning and cutting allows scope for the habitat to continue improving in years to come. The mix of vegetation, terrain and topography allows the moor to support a wide range of birdlife including the iconic black grouse. There are also two flight ponds on the moor.

There is potential subject to obtaining necessary consents to construct a lunch hut facility on the railway line through the centre of the moor.
