A rare opportunity to acquire this versatile and well located farmland with scope for a range of uses including arable farming, greenhouse crops and light industrial use/storage (subject to planning).
Accessed off the Stewkley Road and formerly part of the old Wing Airfield, the land comprises approximately 187.55 acres (75.90 hectares) of predominantly arable land with some permanent pasture. Broadly level, the land is split into three blocks and is enclosed by mature hedgerows and stock-proof wire fencing.
