A 169-acre farm at Melverley, near Oswestry in Shropshire, is up for auction as a whole or in up to nine lots, on 17 September.

An executors’ sale, Hendre Farm comprises a substantial traditional farmhouse needing modernisation (guided with 18 acres at £750,000), traditional and modern buildings, and good pasture, some of which lies along the banks of the River Vyrnwy. There is potential for both amenity and agricultural use, says the agent, Roger Parry & Partners.
