Description & Situation
Berrys are delighted to be favoured with instructions to market for sale Parsons Pools, part of a successfully operating commercial fish farm supplying the angling markets. Reared fish currently include Bream, Carp, Tench, Rudd, Barbel, Ide and hybrids such as the F1 (stock are not to be included within the sale). The vendor, who has been involved in the industry for more than 25 years, has taken the decision to consolidate his business interests and sell the Parsons Pools site.

The property extends in all to 4.49 hectares (11.11 acres) in a picturesque setting located just south of the A53 between Market Drayton and Loggerheads, to the south of the village of Almington. The entrance is fitted with secure double gates off Pinfold Lane from where an internal drive leads on to the existing hatchery building and access track serving a range of pools varying from smaller nursery ponds to larger rearing pools suited to a range of fish. The property borders the Coal Brook along the north eastern boundary, which sits outside current ownership. We are informed that the pools are not within the associated flood zone.

The property has the benefit of outline planning permission for the erection of a site managers dwelling (reference; 18/00119/OUT) to be occupied in conjunction with the fish rearing business. The proposal is for a detached brick property under tile roof comprising kitchen, living room, study, utility, W.C. and hall with 3 bedrooms (1 en-suite) and a bathroom on the first floor, extending to approximately 148m² GIA.

Located adjacent to the proposed plot is an existing steel portal framed hatchery building, erected in 2015. The building, which is approximately 15m x 10m, is fully enclosed with roller shutter door and concrete floor with ducts and drainage channels ready for services. There is sufficient space for proposed hatchery tanks and equipment, workshop, office, W.C. and storage. An indicative floor plan accompanies these particulars.

The pools are spring fed from land to the south of the property. The source is gravity fed and understood to rise at Old Springs before being piped across farmland to the immediate south of the property, entering the property close to the hatchery building via two feeds linked to valve complexes. The system allows the control of water to individual pools rather than the site as a whole, offering advantages in terms of efficiency and biosecurity.

The site is CEFAS registered and approved.

Abstraction licences are held under reference numbers: 18/54/4/1306/S (summer) 18/54/4/1307/S (winter).
