The Land

Two useful parcels of arable land separated by the Holmes Chapel Road, with excellent access and potential for long term development, subject to planning. Lot 1 extends to 12.9 acres. Lot 2 extends to 31.1 acres. Potential purchasers are invited to consider a price for the whole, or for one of two lots. It is anticipated that the land will appeal to a wide variety of purchasers including local farmers, equestrian users, developers and investors.


Viewing can take place at any time. Please note that the vendor and agent take no responsibility for any injuries incurred whilst on the land. There is a cereal crop to be harvested this summer. It is expected that those viewing will keep to the edges of the fields.

Soil Type and Grade

According to Soilscape, the land to the north is slowly permeable, seasonally wet, slightly acid but base rich loam and clay, and the land to the south is freely draining slightly acid and sand. All the land is Grade 3.

Land Registry

The land is registered with the Land Registry under title number CH652276. A copy is available on request.

Tenure and Possession

The Land is sold freehold and with vacant possession granted on completion.

Basic Payment Scheme and Stewardship Schemes

The land has previously been used in the Basic Payment Scheme, and the successful purchaser will comply with all cross compliance measured for the remainder of 2023 on behalf of the vendor. We are not aware of any Stewardship schemes on the land.

Wayleaves, Easements and Rights of Way, etc.

The Land is sold subject to and with the benefit of all existing rights including Rights of Way whether public or private, light, drainage, water and electricity supply, and all other rights, obligations, easements, quasi easements and all wayleaves or covenants whether disclosed or not. There is a public footpath running along the edge of the motorway, and both a gas pipe and fibre optic cable easement beneath Lot 1.


There will be a clause placed upon the land which will be in place for a 30 year period and in the event of Planning Consent being obtained for a non-agricultural use, an overage will be payable on the sale of the land with planning consent or upon the commencement of development and which will be a 30% of the uplift from the value of the land with no prospect of development and the value of the land with the benefit of planning consent. The buyer will be required to enter into a deed on completion. Private equestrian use would not trigger the overage clause.
