Freehold Interest – Approximately 3.5 Acres Land – Subject to 999 Year Lease

Freehold interest of approximately 3.5 acres of land, out of which a 999 year lease (from 21st April 2017) has been granted to Chipping Cricket Club. The rent payable is one peppercorn per annum (if requested). Please refer to the legal pack for copy of the lease. Location The cricket club and pitch are situated to the east of Longridge Road on the southerly fringe of Chipping Village. Chipping is a picturesque village situated in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the county of Lancashire. This medieval conservation area benefits from good connectivity to other towns in the North West of England, being situated 8.5 miles north west of Clitheroe and 12.7 miles north east of Preston. Positioned close to the south-western edge of the Forest of Bowland, Chipping is an area of incredible natural heritage in the heart of the Ribble Valley. The Valley provides a connection between Chipping and the Forrest of Bowland whilst forming a gateway to Sykes Fell from both Longridge and Clitheroe. Given its well-documented history and subsequent conversationalist efforts, the area is widely renowned for its unspoilt countryside and wildlife, earning it the official title of an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ (AONB). The area also won the RHS Britain in Bloom Gold Award for the Best Village in 2009, in addition to more recent awards in 2016 and 2017 for the Northwest in Bloom competitions. Any purchasers choosing to buy without viewing in person are doing so at their own risk and acknowledge that the auctioneer will not be held responsible for any issues that may arise due to them being unintentionally missed from the video or sales particulars.
