Lot 1 – 25.77 acres (10.43 hectares)
Lot 2 – 136.35 acres (55.18 hectares)
A ring-fenced block of productive upland meadow and grazing land with sporadic tree and shrub cover, divided into three separate parcels. The boundaries are a mixture of dry-stone walls and stock fencing. The land slopes gently upwards from the road entrance.
The land benefits from direct access from the adjacent Council maintained public highway. The land in parcel SD 4392 6470 is subject to third party rights of access granted for agricultural purposes to neighbouring fields.
A fantastic block of upland pasture extending to 136.35 acres (58.18 hectares). The allotment rises from west to east from approximately 55m above sea level at the entrance to the peak of Lord’s Lot at 205 above sea level. It offers spectacular views over the Winster Valley and towards the Lake District Fells.
The land can be accessed by vehicle via a stoned shared access track marked brown on the Sale Plan or via Lot 1 if purchased together. There is a public footpath crossing the land and the whole parcel is designated as open access land under the Countryside Rights of Way Act 2000.
The land comprises species-rich grassland and scrub with good amounts of heather and bilberry. It has some rocky outcrops and has been identified by Natural England for its fritillary butterfly. It is high in biodiversity and nature conservation interest but is not subject to any statutory environmental designations.
The land offers great sporting potential, with sporting rights included on both lots. The land has previously been used for pheasant shooting, clay pigeon shooting and deer stalking but there are no existing agreements in place.
