Shropshire arable opportunity

An opportunity to buy a high-quality commercial arable farm in north Shropshire has arisen with the sale of Charity Farm, at Burlton near Wem.


The farm has 511 acres of arable land with areas of grassland and amenity woodland. “A major feature of the property is the well presented and greatly improved land,” said Allen Gittins of agent Halls.

“Heavier soil at one end of the farm gives way to a lighter sandier loam and then an area of peatier soil to the eastern end, providing excellent variation.” About 39 acres is let for potato growing.

There are modern, multi-purpose buildings suited to grain storage and livestock housing plus planning permission for further grain storage. The farm, which has a large Victorian farmhouse and traditional former coach house, is for sale as a whole at £3.75m, or in lots. (Halls 01691 622 602)
