AN ATTRACTIVE BLOCK OF ARABLE LAND AND WOODLAND
The land at Bromham was purchased in 2005 by a charitable trust for nature. In the period of their ownership the charity has focussed on conserving and enhancing the natural environment. Their work has included the conversion of marginal land into woodland/scrubland, the planting of hedges and the promotion of habitat for ground-nesting birds.
The property is split as follows:-
Arable - 78.35 acres
A single arable field farmed under a Contract Farming Agreement with a neighbour. In recent years, the land has been farmed as part of a traditional cereal rotation.
Environmental - 3.48 acres
Conservation land around the arable field which previously formed the base of an environmental stewardship scheme with Natural England.
Natural regeneration 10.80 acres
Planted with saplings during the charity's ownership and allowed to regenerate naturally. There are rides cut through the woodland for grazing wildlife.
Woodland 7.16 acres
Established mixed deciduous woodland forming part of the wider Hanger Wood classified as a SSSI and an Ancient Woodland.
There will be a reservation in favour of the Vendor to share from any uplift in value resulting from any future development. The proposed uplift being 30% of the net increase in value on the grant of planning permission for a period of 25 years from the date of completion.
