Uttoxeter Land and Property Auction – July 2022



The July property sale at Uttoxeter managed to coincide with a drop in the temperature to a more bearable level but with a good number of people in the sale room the temperature soon rose. That was certainly the case for the 2.54 acres of land off Nabb Lane in Alton which scorched away to £96,000 (£37,795/a) with a number of bidders hoping to end up with the ground but only one lucky buyer! Crowfoot Farm near Church Broughton with 8.53 acres of land and in need of refurbishment, again found good interest and was secured by the final bidder for £530,000 which was towards the top end of the guide price. Unfortunately the two paddocks off Gravelly Lane in Stonnall failed to find a buyer under the hammer but have received interest after the sale but as yet are still available.


Remember, that when selling by auction, after successful bids there is an exchange of contracts on that day and completion usually 28 days thereafter as well as a 10% deposit taken on the day of the sale, so you know that you’ve sold! Let us know if you have a property that you would like an appraisal on and we will let you know whether auction will suit but if not, then we also sell property by Private Treaty and Tender so we cover all the ways that you need.

Uttoxeter Land and Property Auction – May 2022

Wednesday the 25th of May saw the Bagshaws Uttoxeter Property Auction take place at Uttoxeter Racecourse.



There was a full room of interested parties for the properties available and it resulted in a 100% clearance. There were originally five lots consigned but with one of those selling before auction, 5.98 acres off Oldfields Lane Snelston, the remaining four received strong bidding from the thirty bidders that had registered for the day.

  • Commercial barns at Doveridge (ex agricultural buildings) £189,000
  • Sweet Meadow Farm, Dagdale (barn conversion) £340,000
  • 28.02 acres off Sides Lane at Snelston £270,000 (£9,636/a)
  • 4.91 acres off Sides Lane at Snelston £85,000 (£17,311/a)


This goes to show that with the current strength in the property market, if the individual property suits a sale by auction then the results are there to be seen both at Uttoxeter and the Bakewell sale on Monday.

Please contact your local office if you feel that you have such a property and we would be pleased to advise you.

Bakewell Land and Property Auction – May 2022


Bakewell Property Auction Report – 23rd May 2022


£4.48 million of property sold


With hundreds of interested parties gathered in the main concourse of the Agricultural Business Centre, the prospects looked good for a successful sale of the 19 lots on offer, and the portents proved right, with phenomenal prices being realised under the hammer of Bakewell Partner, Ed Lawley.  Bidding was strong and swift throughout with a range of differing buyers helping to drive prices.


Some highlights included Windmill Farm at Kirk Ireton, a detached farm and buildings in need of refurbishment within 5.89 acres achieving £792,000.  47 acres of good grassland at Priestcliffe released £710,000 (£14,831/ac) at the fall of the hammer. A traditional stone barn at Priestcliffe sold for £252,000, and Tophill Farm at Ible achieved £680,000. However, almost without exception, all lots did tremendously well.


We will feature some of the sold properties over the coming weeks, but simply by way of summary, the prices achieved were as follows:


2.07 acres at Kirk Ireton £70,000
8.42 acres at Ashover £116,000
21.16 acres at Ashover £176,000
Barn and 4 acres at Priestcliffe £252,000
47.87 acres of grassland at Priestcliffe £710,000
4.39 acres at Priestcliffe £45,000
6.6 acres at Priestcliffe £40,000
2.81 acres at Priestcliffe £32,000
11.5 acres of grassland at Woodland at Damflask, Loxley £130,000

Croft Meadow, Tideswell £490,000
Windmill Farm, Kirk Ireton £792,000
Tophill Farm, Grangemill £680,000


The auctioneer, Ed Lawley commented;


“Today illustrates the best of the auction system.  With more than 300 people in attendance, we saw many bidders competing to secure properties, that resulted in some very strong prices; in many cases far more than the vendors could ever have imagined!”


The prices achieved, many well in excess of the guide prices, show how the competitive environment of a live auction can really push prices for the right type of property.


Should you have any property that you consider suitable for auction, or other means of sale, please do not hesitate to contact to contact your local Bagshaws office for free and confidential advice.


At the time of writing, the land at Winster, Mam House Farm and Chestnut Farmhouse remain available.

Uttoxeter Land and Property Auction – July 2021


Uttoxeter Property Auction


Wednesday 21st July was our first Uttoxeter property auction since September of last year albeit that we have continued to sell property by tender and private treaty.


Originally due to have eight lots go under the hammer only four were forward as three lots (The Borough’s Barns and two lots of land at Hixon) were sold prior and the building plot at Doveridge withdrawn.


Of the lots forward, we saw good interest in the Old Offices at Modershall which was sold at £330,000, 50.75 acres of land at Elmhurst, Lichfield received spirited bidding from several interested parties finally selling at £565,000, 1.46 acres of land adjoining the Trent at Handsacre was also keenly fought over, finally realising £43,000. The only lot not sold was 12.89 acres of pasture land at Rugeley which received post sale bids but is currently still available.


All in all it was a very good result with six out of the eight lots being sold and those sold on the day receiving good bidding showing the benefit of a traditional and transparent auction sale which always end with an exchange of contracts on the day for the successful sales.


The next Uttoxeter Property Auction is on the 21st September and further entries are invited.
