Foxhill Meadow £45,000 Freehold


Foxhill Meadow, with its rich agricultural heritage, holds abundant potential for woodland creation. Nestled in the picturesque Welsh Marches, it lies close to the charming village of Church Stoke.

The meadow, nestled amidst serene surroundings, is gently undulating. Situated near to the border between England and Wales in Powys, this location offers captivating vistas of the Shropshire Hills to the east and Corndon Hill to the north west.

Along the eastern edge of the meadow, a gentle brook meanders demarcating the meadow’s shared boundary. Eventually, it merges downstream with the River West Onny. This natural water source not only adds value but also serves as an alluring habitat for wildlife.

Throughout its historical use, this land has served as a space for grazing animals and grass production. However, it now presents an exciting opportunity for families or individuals keen on conservation initiatives. Whether it’s creating new woodland, cultivating wildflower meadows or embracing rewilding practices, this canvas invites thoughtful stewardship. Such efforts can serve dual purposes: contributing to carbon offsetting and enhancing the natural amenity of the area.

The presence of standing trees along the meadow’s edge and in the surrounding vicinity creates a fertile ground for natural regeneration. This land holds immense potential for achieving this rejuvenation. Active tree planting can indeed complement the natural regeneration process and there are several grants available to support tree and hedge planting here in the UK.

Access to the land is facilitated by a sturdy hardcore track that begins at the main entrance through a shared padlocked gate. This track extends along the western edge of the meadow and has a convenient hardstanding parking area for a family sized vehicle.

The meadow assumes a triangular shape, its contours gently sloping downward from the western boundary. This boundary is marked by light blue painted posts along the shared access track. On the eastern side, the meadow meets a stock-proof fence (which is not the boundary of the land), accompanied by a line of mature trees and shrubs. These natural features create a privacy screen and offer shelter from the elements before the meadow merges with a gentle-flowing freshwater brook which acts as the eastern boundary.

The southern boundary of the meadow extends from east to west. Here, a blend of trees and shrubs accompanies an aged stock-proof fence, providing further privacy and shelter from the elements.

Foxhill Meadow reveals itself as a remarkable parcel of land. With its natural water source and a harmonious blend of mature trees and shrubs, it also boasts open expanses that serve as a blank canvas for exciting tree planting opportunities for those wishing to leave a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy.

The captivating vistas across the valley, stretching towards the peaks of the Shropshire Hills and the distinctive Corndon Hill, set this meadow apart. Whether bathed in sunlight or shrouded in mist, these views create an ever-changing canvas for those who appreciate natural beauty.

Local area and history

Corndon Hill is a significant local landmark and with a summit of over 510m it forms a breath-taking backdrop to the local area.

Location map



In terms of finding the meadow, when heading north out of the village of Hyssington, go past the small carpark and swings on your left hand side and follow the road for about 1 3/4 miles, going past Fishpool Farm and Fishpool Gate, before taking a right hand turn which is signposted as unsuitable for HGV's. It is the third turning on the right. Once you have turned right, the entrance to the site is 250m down on your right hand side, signposted with a "Woodlands" sign on the gate.

The land can also be accessed via the A488 via a small left hand turn when heading north, in between Runnis Meadow Camping (on Google Maps) and the village of White Grit, again signposted as unsuitable for HGV's. Please note this turning drops away fairly steeply and has a steep ditch on its right hand side. The main gate is circa 500m down on the left hand side.

Once at the main gate, park in the little pull-in off the road, carefully climb the gate and follow the access track through the first field, at which point you will come across a small brook. Once you walk over that brook, Foxhill Meadow begins on the left hand side of the track which is identified by light blue paint markings on the wooden boundary posts.
