Lot 2 – prime pasture and meadow land extending to 82.01 acres (33.19 hectares) OTA as edged 'blue' on the Site Plan.

All of the land is down to permanent grassland providing a mixture of pasture and meadowland in excellent heart. Having formerly operated as a dairy farm prior to Foot & Mouth Disease in 2001 the land has retained its productivity and is in excellent heart, indeed several fields have benefitted from ploughing and re-seeding in recent years. Advantage has been taken of a Countryside Stewardship Scheme to ensure all walls and hedges are in good condition and stock proof. The Stewardship Scheme has now expired and any prospective purchaser should make their own enquiries as to any future schemes which may be available. The land relies primarily on natural water courses although a mains water trough is situated in field number 2808 as shown on the site plan which is served by its own separate connection.

A new fence is to be constructed by the Vendors along the line A-B on the plan and a right of way retained, as shown 'brown' on the plan. The Vendors will retain the right to extract water from the beck via the existing system.
