&#8226 SHREWSBURY-based agent Halls is selling 127 acres of accommodation land near Whitchurch, Shropshire, in four lots. Most of the land is IACS-registered and is being disposed of by farmer Charles Wilson, of Bradeley Green Farm, because it is surplus to requirements. The guide is set at £2500-£3000/acre.

&#8226 CHURCH Farm, Stoke Goldington, Bucks, has been sold by Bidwells. Offered in seven lots for £3.25m it was bought as a whole except for one cottage. A landowner from the nearby village of Salford, on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, is the buyer and, say local sources, the 900 acres will initially be cropped by a farmer from Sherington, less than five miles away.

&#8226 LAND belonging to Corus, formerly British Steel, is going under the hammer on Nov 21 through the Grantham office of Leics-based Shoulers. The 25 acres of Grade 3 IACS-registered land at Colsterworth is being guided at £1720/acre and is subject to a 27-year "clawback" clause. &#42
