Property Description

6.91 acres (2.80 hectares) of Permanent Pasture Land off Chapel End, Great Gidding.


The Land off Chapel End is centrally located in the rural village of Great Gidding, within the County of Cambridgeshire.

The Land off Chapel End is situated 6.9 miles from the A1 trunk road and 9.3 miles from the A14 trunk road which both provide excellent transport links to the north, south and east.


The Land off Chapel End comprises three enclosures of permanent pasture, extending to approximately 6.91 acres (2.80 hectares) in total. The village of Great Gidding arches around the pasture which benefits from good road frontage on the southern boundary which adjoins Chapel End. The majority of the boundaries comprise mature hedgerows and trees.
The boundaries are fenced in part and comprise a combination of post and rail and post, pig netting and barbed wire. The property is accessed directly from Chapel End, a quiet road, via a gateway which is set back from the highway. Access to the two
enclosures to the north of the property is taken internally via the first enclosure off Chapel End.

The majority of the land is classified as Grade 3 according to the Agricultural Land Classification maps, and the soil is predominantly of the Hanslope Association according to the Soil Survey of England and Wales, which is characterised by slowly permeable calcareous clayey soils. The two enclosures which are accessed internally, slope gently north and the land has been used historically to graze cattle and horses. More recently, the land has been used to graze mares in foal. The three enclosures are well positioned and have excellent potential for both equestrian and amenity uses, as well as agricultural use.

The first enclosure is designated as a County Wildlife Site. Whilst important for wildlife, they are not protected by any legislation, and so there are no restrictions or obligations placed on normal land management practices. Recognition of the land as a County Wildlife Site does not mean that the property will be opened to the public for wider access, nor does it mean it will be publicised to the wider public.
