The land lot 1
A productive block of level arable land comprising two parcels both bordered with mature hedgerow and boundary trees. An unadopted track runs along the entire western boundary with gated access currently taken via a gravelled track that runs along the southern boundary providing access to Lot 2. If Lot 1 is sold separately, it is proposed that a new access track will be installed within lot 1 along the western boundary through an additional existing gateway. The land is classified on the Natural England Land Classification maps as being Grade 3 and is described as being slowly permeable, seasonally wet and slightly acidic but base-rich loamy and clayey soils. The whole of Lot 1 extends to 30.868 acres (12.491 hectares).
A unique block of pasture and arable land offering the opportunity for alternative amenity uses subject to the necessary permissions. The pasture land sits within an elevated position and offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside incuding the Long Mynd, the Lawley and Caer Caradoc as well as Shrewsbury in the distance. The land contains a general-purpose agricultural barn, a small-scale quarry which the current owner has mined to create the access track and a small spring fed pool which attracts a variety of waterfoul including several species of geese, duck and dabchick. The agricultural building is of steel portal framed construction under corrugated sheet roof and walls. The owner has also planted specimen parkland trees including holly, western hemlock, spruce, walnut (which fruit) and most interestingly, Damascenes, which are a cross between damson and plum. Within the arable parcel is a bridleway than runs from east to west and
connects with the wider bridleway network and offers an additional diversification opportunity subject to the necessary permissions. The ,arable parcel is fenced with a mature hedgerow along the northern, eastern and western boundaries. The grass parcel is also stock fenced.

maps as being Grade 3 and is described as being slowly permeable, seasonally wet and slightly acidic but base-rich loamy and clayey soils. The whole of Lot 2 extends to 23.476 acres (9.50 hectares).

The purchaser will indemnify the claimant against any losses to the 2021 Basic Payment Scheme payments which are due to the purchaser's failings to comply with the Scheme rules for the remainder of the scheme year.

Viewing is strictly by appointment only and must be accompanied by a member of the Madeleys team. Interested parties are asked to note that the wooden footbridge crossing the southern tip of the pool is currently in a state of disrepair and must not be used.
