Productive arable land on market

Halls Auctioneers and Valuers in Shrewsbury have been instructed with the sale of 109 acres of productive land at Higford Lane, Beckbury, in Shropshire.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a block of land being 62.48 acres of high quality productive arable land, plus 32.33 acres of grassland and 12 acres of woodland in a convenient location. Richard Solari Farms Ltd has owned the majority of the land for over 60 years and previously used it for producing potatoes using irrigation from the River Worfe.

The gently sloping topography and wooded escarpment add significant privacy and amenity value to the land. A family run clay pigeon shooting syndicate operated based around the natural slopes in the grassland. Due to the valley feature in the grassland and woodland, there is the opportunity for development into leisure uses, subject to planning.

The soil is a deep fertile sandy loam with good natural drainage, with Grade 2 land surrounding the area. The land is well served by a lane from the northern end.  

Halls rural director Shaun Jones said: “This is a very rare opportunity to purchase this quality and quantity of land in the area. The land is generally level and offers potential amenity interest.” The land is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of £900,000.
