The land is situated to the north of Shorne and between the larger towns of Rochester and Gravesend with convenient access to both along the A226. This part of North Kent is renowned for vegetable and root cropping with traditional winter wheat and oil seed rape rotations.
The holding comprises a ring fenced parcel of Grade I & II farmland which has historically been farmed in conjunction with 750 acres of rented land nearby.
The soils are classified by the Soil Survey for England and Wales as predominantly belonging to the Fyfield 4 Series characterised by deep well drained often stoneless, coarse, loamy and sandy soils. The northern part of the farm adjoining Lower Road is Grade I and to the south Grade II.
The land is served by 4 & 5” underground mains with 6 hydrants. There is no reservoir or bore hole on the property as water has historically been drawn from a reservoir on the let land to the north.
A quotation has been obtained for a 15” diameter bore hole at up to 100 metres in depth. A licence to abstract is not required for less than 20m³ per day unless the water is for trickle irrigation purposes so there is an opportunity for the new owner to extract water and use the existing underground pipe network. Further details are available from the selling agents.
The land has grown a wide variety of combinable crops with winter wheat and beans established for the 2018 harvest. The land is also growing onions this year and has historically produced vegetable crops and potatoes. The previous cropping history is available on request. Holdover rights to harvest the 2018 crop may be required after completion depending on the timing of sale.
The vendor is retiring from farming and retaining the farmhouse, cottages and an area of land in the north western part of the holding.
The apportioned amounts of entitlement will be transferred to the Purchaser after completion in autumn 2018. The Vendor will retain the 2018 claim.
