- Key Details
The 11.644 acres of Land at Threlkeld lies approximately 1 mile to the west of the village.
The Land benefits from roadside access and a natural water supply.
This land offers an opportunity to purchase a useful block of grazing land with roadside access.
The land is divided into two fields although the fencing between the two is dilapidated and therefore not stock proof.
Access is via a narrow roadside field gate set back from the road at an angle. The gateway is narrow and unsuited to large machinery.
Current land use would be described as permanent pasture.
There are some small areas affected by sieve infestations which have been cut back on a regular basis.
The land rises up from the access point off the public highway.
There is a small block of trees situated in the northern corner of the land.
The land is bordered by a mix of post and wire fences and dry stone walls which are in reasonable condition. The land rises from 170 metres above mean sea level at the point of access to the highest point being approximately 210 metres above mean sea level.
The Land falls within the Severely Disadvantaged Area for Basic Payment purposes (please see later paragraph for details).
The land is not in currently within any form of environmental scheme.
Potential Alternative Land Uses – Biodiversity, carbon capture and the Environmental Land Management scheme
Potential purchasers attention is drawn to the implications arising from the pending replacement of the current land based subsidy system by the new Environmental Land Management scheme.
Whilst exact details are still awaited it is clear that the emphasis for funding will be on improving the environmental use of the land, water quality, carbon sequestration, biodiversity, tree planting and reducing the intensity of the land use.
Marginal land such as the land on offer will be well placed to tap into such funding subject to clarification on the details and options arising.
