Further Information

The principal block of land, situated to the south of Langworth and the west of Barlings Lane, comprises arable land, woodland and a substantial irrigation reservoir with a lakeside Log Cabin.

The arable land extends to 436.71 acres (176.73 hectares). The fields are predominantly large, making them suitable for modern farming practice, and are serviced by well maintained tracks. The arable land also benefits from an irrigation ring main.
The land is classified as Grade 2/3. The Soil Survey of England and Wales describes most of the land as coming under the Ragdale series, being described as chalky till which is slowly permeable calcareous clayey soils suitable for winter cereals and vegetables. The land to the east along Barlings Lane comes under the Ruskington series, being described as deep permeable calcareous coarse and fine loamy and sandy soils suitable for cereals, sugar beet, potatoes and some field vegetables.

There is large parcel of woodland, known as Barlings Park Wood, situated at the southern end of the Lot. The land is interspersed with a number of other blocks of woodland that have been planted under a Woodland Grant Scheme. These areas
would complement a future shoot on the property.

The Lake and Log Cabin are situated in the heart of the land. The lake comprises 9.04 acres of water, originally constructed as an irrigation reservoir, and benefits from a winter abstraction licence for 90,900 cubic metres. The lake benefits from a jetty to launch and recover recreational craft.

The Log Cabin is located on the edge of the water, with wooden decking stretching out over the lake. Leading straight off the decking you enter the large covered veranda with exterior heating, following on you enter the cabin which benefits from open plan living. The fully equipped, bespoke Clive Christian Kitchen benefits from all modern kitchen appliances. To the side of the Log Cabin is a separate changing room with shower and fitted storage units. The Log Cabin also has a separate WC.
