About this property

  • Extending to about 50 acres (20.23 hectares), the property comprises a meadow with River Thames frontage and is principally an area of pasture land. The land is currently grazed on an annual grazing licence which runs from 1st April to 31st December.

    The land is predominantly water meadow and lies in a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Income from the land is currently generated through BPS and HLS schemes, along with the grazing licence fee.

    The management of the site has been focused on protecting the flora and fauna inhabiting Pixey Mead. Pixey Mead has been designated for its botanical importance at both a national and European level. The water meadows have never been ploughed, as a result of this there are rare species of flowers including early purple orchid, adder's tongue fern and meadow buttercup.
    The land benefits from direct access to the River Thames and can be accessed on foot along footpath 229/15. There is no vehicular access to the land.

    The property is offered for sale as a whole.

Local information

  • The land is situated to the west of Wolvercote, two sides of the land are bordered by the River Thames, one by Wolvercote Mill Stream and one by the remainder of Pixey Mead.
