Land at Higher Poynton, Stockport
A productive block of pasture and meadow land totalling 53.49 Acres (21.66 Ha) ideal for grazing or mowing. Part of the land, 18.02 Acres (7.29 Ha), is subject to an Agricultural Holdings Act tenancy. The land forms part of the holding known as Barlow House Farm. With the farmhouse and buildings having been modernised and were sold some time ago, the land now remains.
To the centre of the land, within a small block of woodland, are a small range of dilapidated tin farm buildings which offer some shelter for grazing stock.
The land is classified as Grade III on the Soil Survey of England and Wales and is currently all in permanent pasture although some of the northern-most land has been ploughed in recent years.
18.02 Acres (7.29 Ha) of the land is sold subject to an Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 tenancy. There is no written tenancy agreement but a Section 6 notice has been served. It is believed that the tenancy holds succession rights in which one succession remains. The current rent is £1200 pa and this is payable on 31st July each year. The rent has not been reviewed in recent years.
The remaining land is sold freehold with vacant possession upon completion.
