A rare chance to buy good land close to central London has arisen with the launch of 174 acres at Scadbury, near Gravesend, Kent.

The Grade 2 land is in Southfleet parish, renowned for vegetable and salad production. Tom French of agent BTF Partnership said the land would appeal to farmers and outside investors seeking good returns and the prospect of non-agricultural use on some lots, subject to planning.

The land is for sale as a whole or in eight lots with a guide price of £1.75m. (BTF Partnership 01233 740 077)
