605-acre arable unit launched in Lincs

BIDWELLS AND John H Pickup are adding to a busy Lincs market with the launch of West Hale Farm.

The 605-acre Grade 2/3 irrigated arable unit at Epworth, 10 miles from Scunthorpe, was first marketed early this century but was withdrawn by its investor owner, said Bidwell’s Ed Russell. “It was a different market then.” 

Set to be guided at about £1.8m in seven lots, the farm includes a five-bed agriculturally tied farmhouse and a three-bed house.

Mr Russell said the land was valued at £2000-£2300/acre including single farm payment entitlements. “It’s priced attractively.”
