Blundstone Paddock £69,000 Freehold


Blundstone Paddock is an open sunny meadow full of wildlife.

It is easily accessible along a solid track and there is a recently created private parking space for a vehicle. From this all areas of the meadow are accessible.

The gently rolling meadow is well drained. This allows varied flowers to thrive, from the spring and summer flowers such as Germander Speedwell to Lady's-smock. In turn this supports a variety of insects, moths and butterflies.

Parking is at the lower part of the meadow; it's a gentle walk to the top where the widest views are. This would be a perfect place to make sitting space to enjoy the meadow from.

This well drained meadow, with it's wide views across to Cordon Hill, Mucklewick Hill and The Rowls, has a lot of potential for planting. It would be perfect for broadleaf with a mix of more commercial trees too. We would be happy to chat about what is possible here. The meadow could become a diverse natural woodland with private areas for family enjoyment - there is a lot of scope to create here.

In 2023 the Shropshire Council Community Trees Scheme offered grants to people who wished to plant trees and short sections of hedging, and to create small areas of woodland in Shropshire. They may offer the same again in 2024, keep an eye on the website. Grants are also available through the the UK government for planting trees and countryside matters.

Blundstone paddock is also a lovely wide open space and can be enjoyed just as it is.

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.


Blundstone Paddock is a lovely bright open meadow. It is fringed with trees and woodland, and potentially could be a beautiful woodland with sensitive planning and planting. However, it is just gorgeous as it is too!


Open hedged rather than fenced fields allow wildlife free rein throughout this area. Muntjac, badger, moles, voles, rabbits and much more call this area home.

The spring and summer flowers carpet the meadow such as Germander Speedwell and lady's Smock.


Open sloping field with outstanding views of the valley and woodlands around.
