173.37 acres

A ring-fenced block of productive and versatile arable land extending to 173.37 acres (70.16 ha) or thereabouts.DESCRIPTIONThe Land at Newton Red House extends to approximately 173.37 acres (70.16 ha) and is an excellent productive unit within a ring-fenced block incorporating 5 principal fields. The land lies between 60m and 90m above sea level sloping mainly from the north down to south.The land is classified as Grade 3 on the MAFF Land Use Capability Classification, with soils of the Wighill, Hall and Hallsworth Series. The land is considered capable of producing consistently good yields of a wide range of mixed crops. The fields are well laid out and of a generous size, easily accommodating modern farming machinery and being readily accessible.The land has in recent times been devoted to a rotation of cereal crops, although potatoes and sugar beet have been grown in the past. Lately, the Vendor has adopted a more regenerative farming approach: the combinable cropping has been complemented by the introduction of legume fallow, beans and fallow which has been aided via a Countryside Stewardship Scheme. It is believed that this will have been beneficial in terms of soil structure and fertility.TENUREThe land is offered for sale freehold with vacant possession.ENVIRONMENTAL SCHEMESThe land is part of a larger holding which is entered into a Countryside Stewardship Mid-Tier Agreement involving permanent and rotational options. However, no part of the land now being sold is within any permanent option. The vendor will remove his rotational options from the land being sold after the sale allowing the purchaser to enter into a fresh agreement if desired.BASIC PAYMENT SCHEMEThe land is registered with the Rural Payments Agency. Due to the 2023 change in regulations, no BPS entitlements will be transferred to the purchaser.METHOD OF SALEThe land is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole. However, practical lotting suggestions will be considered, and prospective purchasers should make their interest known to the selling agents as soon as possible. The Vendors reserve the right to conclude negotiations by any other means.DIRECTIONSThe land can easily be reached from the north via the A1.
