Land off Bankhall, Chapel-En-Le-Frith, High Peak SK23 9UB
The land is situated in an elevated rural location above the popular town of Chapel en le Frith having stunning views of the surrounding countryside. It is positioned in a peaceful and private setting on the outskirts of a small cluster of residential properties. It is located just outside the Peak District National Park boundary and in an area renowned for its beautiful scenery and many outdoor walks, trails and activities. Despite being in this rural setting, the land benefits from being located less than a mile from the centre of Chapel en le Frith offering a variety of amenities. The area has excellent transport links to Manchester (24 miles), Sheffield (25 miles), Macclesfield (12 miles), Buxton (6 miles) via the road network and the nearest train station is within 1.5 miles drive.

The land extends to 7.28 acres (2.95 hectares) of grassland, partly suitable for mowing and all for grazing of livestock, and is split into various parcels.

A substantial field shelter sits to the north of the block of land, and there are two entrance points off the lane itself.
