Arable land near Shrewsbury sells above asking price
Published December 1st, 2015
An excellent block of arable land extending to approximately 85.37 acres (34.55 hectares) at Uffington near Shrewsbury has successfully been sold by Berrys.
The land at the foot of Haughmond Hill which has been farmed under an arable rotation for many years attracted a great deal of interest and sold for in excess of its guide price of £860,000 (£10,000 an acre).
“This was an exceptional block of land in a location where land rarely comes to the market so as expected we had a great deal of interest from neighbouring farmers and landowners and also those further afield,” said Chris Jones, head of rural agency with Berrys at Shrewsbury.
“The land was available for sale by private treaty and after a number of offers went to best and final offers before eventually being sold to a local landowner,” he said.
Despite the downturn in agricultural commodity prices, the farmland market remains extremely competitive in Shropshire with still very few parcels becoming available to purchase.
