Whiteditch again

WHITEDITCH Farm which changed hands last March is for sale again and early signs point to the likelihood of a similar sale figure.

"On behalf of a client I bought the 284-acre arable farm near Saffron Walden, Essex from Bidwells for in excess of £750,000," said Robert Fairey, Brown & Co, "Now Im reselling it and although it is yet to be brought on to the open market I have received enough interest to suggest a quick sale".

The underbidders last time round are interested in making an offer prior to an open marketing and there are other parties talking in similar value terms as last years price.

At Newport the 284-acre arable unit lacks a house but includes 1200t of modern grain storage and grade 2 combinable cropping land.
