Unusual arable block on long lease

An unusual block of grade 3 arable land comes to the market this week at Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, near Ashington in Northumberland.

Ben Atkinson, of George F White, is looking for offers of more than £950,000 for 113.7ha (281 acres) of arable land, which values it at £3,400/acre. Just over half is in spring barley or winter wheat with the remainder fallow.

The land lies between the urban fringe of Ashington and the SSSI Northumberland Coastline and the guide price is for a 999-year lease with a rent of £10 a year. There is potential single payment income and the land is suitable for environmental stewardship schemes. (George F White 01665 603581)
