Hill View Meadow £69,000 Freehold


Approximately five acres of land gently sloping with views of the hills and fields around. Easy access to the Shropshire countryside and with a large secluded and sheltered parking bay. The land is bordered along two edges by fence lines, and posts mark the boundary between it and Shelve View next door. The land could be utilised as either a paddock (with the addition of extra fencing) or easily planted with trees to create a long term woodland for the enjoyment of generations to come. the large parking bay has a deep recess which protects from any weather.

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. Grants are available through the the UK government for planting trees as well as stewardship grants. https://www.gov.uk/countryside-stewardship-grants for various criteria relating to the countryside and environment.

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.
