For Sale by Auction at 3pm on 24th July 2023 at the Agricultural Business Centre, Bakewell.

The barn and land are situated in a rural location near to the villages of Ambergate and Nether Heage, where local facilities are available including village shops and post office, public houses, fuel station, a Church, primary school and train station. The nearby market towns of Belper, Wirksworth and Ripley offer a wider range of facilities including supermarkets, high street shops, restaurants and secondary schools. Whilst being situated in a rural location it is very accessible with the barn being less than 2 miles to the North of Belper and 3.5 miles away from the A38 dual carriageway leading to Derby and the M1 motorway. There are many nearby local walks, bridleways, trails and beauty spots in the surrounding area, excellent for those who enjoy the outdoors and with equestrian interests.

From the centre of Belper, head North along the A6 towards Ambergate. Continue straight through the traffic lights passing Derwent Valley Mills on the left. Follow the road over the railway bridge and past Belper Cemetery on the right and take the next right hand turning onto Broadholme Lane. Continue straight past the Fishermans Rest pub and follow the road to the end at the T junction. Turn left onto Crich Lane and the land will be found on the left hand side just before the turning to a small cul-de-sac, indicated by our For Sale board.
