Mineral, timber and sporting rights are all included with the freehold in so far as they are owned, subject to any statutory exclusions.

Land -

The land is in an arable rotation and extends to approximately 142 hectares (352 acres) in 10 fields.

It is classified as being Grade 2 on Sheet 104 of the Provisional Agricultural Land Classification Maps as historically published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. The land is generally free draining. There are some land drains in places.

All of the land lies within a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone and an area of the land is identified as being part of the Castlethorpe Tufas Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Further details on this are available upon request from the Joint Selling Agents.

Holdover/Early Entry -

The land is currently let under an Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 tenancy which will end on completion of the sale whereupon vacant possession will be granted. Holdover will be granted to allow the current tenant to harvest the growing cereal crops and the sugar beet.

Early entry may be possible on exchange of contracts and the payment of a double deposit.

Countryside Stewardship Scheme -

The farm is entered into an Entry Level/Higher Level Countryside Stewardship Agreement which has been extended. The current Agreement has a start date of 01/03/2012 and an end date of 29/02/2028. Details of the Agreement can be provided upon request from the Joint Selling Agents.

Please note that there is a right of way off the B1208 through Castlethorpe Barns/White House Farm buildings as indicated on the attached sale and inset plans coloured green to access the land. This is also part of the route of a right of way in favour of the third party owners of Springfield Plantation which crosses the land along the route coloured brown and also uses the green route referred to above. There will be a right of way granted into the retained land immediately to the south of White House Farm, to provide access into the same, at point A, as shown on the plan and as also shown coloured brown.
