SHROPSHIRE LAND agent Halls auctioned  191 acres of grazing land at Gwern-y-Go Hill Farm, Sarn, on the Powys border on July 26.


The land was sold in three lots for £278,500 (£1458/acre).


Lot 1: £100,000 (52 acres)
Lot 2: 80,000 (65 acres)
Lot 3: 98,500 (74 acres)


“All three lots were purchased by local farmers,” said the firm’s Peter Willcock.
