An attractive block of undulating pastureland in a strategic location with long term development potential, situated to the south of Crick, just off Watford Road, offered freehold, subject to tenancy. Extending to approximately 20.99 acres (8.41ha).

The Land is situated adjacent to Watford Road –South of Crick, with access off Boat Horse Lane. The land benefits from excellent road links, junction 18 of the M1 is situated 1.5 miles west and the M6 is located approximately 5 miles north. The land lies to the South of Crick, with Rugby and Daventry in close proximity being 8 and 8.5 miles away respectively.

The land extends to a total of 20.99 acres with road frontage onto Boat Horse Lane. The land is accessed via a steel gated entrance to the North of the site.

The boundary comprises mature hedge and established trees that surround the land with post and rail fencing to the North of the site. The two fields are separated by a mature hedgerow.

In accordance with Natural England provisional Land Classification the whole parcel is classified as Grade 3 agricultural land and described as loamy and clayey soils with impeded drainage and moderate fertility.

An outline planning application for up to 120 dwellings was submitted in 2015 (Application No. DA/2015/0233), which incorporated SP59711089. This was refused primarily on account of Daventry District Council having exceeded their 5 year rural housing requirement. Details of this application can be found on the West Northamptonshire Council website.

It should also be noted that there are overhead wires that cross the land.
