The land is offered for sale in two lots and is shown for identification purposes coloured blue and green on the enclosed plan.
The land has been farmed in hand to an exceptionally high standard for many years. The farm is gently undulating and consists of Beccles 1 and Hanslope soils and is Classified as Grade 3 under the DEFRA 1:250,000 Land Classification Map.
There is good access into each lot directly from the public highway through a number of gateways. The land has typically been in a white straw rotation of winter wheat, winter barley, oilseed rape and temporary grass leys. A full cropping schedule is shown enclosed.
Lot 3 – 50.06 acres (20.26 hectares) – coloured green on the enclosed plan.
Lying to the south of the public highway, this ring fenced block of land comprises predominantly arable land, a small area of permanent pasture and a superb area of woodland. Two of the fields are currently cropped in winter wheat with the remaining two arable fields being in the second year of a grass ley. As with Lot 2, there are various access points directly off the public highway and again, there is a good network of internal grass margins around the perimeter of the fields. The smaller field to the rear of the woodland was formally in an arable rotation but has been down to grass in recent years.
The mature woodland lies in the centre of Lot 3 and extends to approximately 7 acres (2.83 hectares). It boasts a range of traditional tree species including a number of mature oaks and is an oasis for a variety of both flora and fauna. Also located within Lot 3 is an old pill box and adjoining bore hole, both located adjacent to the public highway opposite the farm buildings; further details of which are available from the Agent.
