A PLOT of land situated within a picturesque country park in Cheshire will go to auction next week with a guide price of £8,500.

Located in The Carrs, a sprawling 71-acre park, the unusual plot is found on the south side of Bollin Hill, close to the main walking route along the River Bollin.

Measuring just 0.005 acres – just over 20 sq. metres - current owners Asset Invest believe the plot provides an excellent opportunity to run pop-up events, or as a permanent refreshment pit-stop for park visitors.

Agents Auction House Cheshire, Staffordshire & Shropshire describe the freehold as an “ideal plot for possible commercial venture, subject to planning.”

The site is perfectly placed to capture passing trade, occupying prime position in the designated picnic area on the banks of the river.

Accessed via Cliff Road, the unused land plot also has potential as a recreational area, or private allotment. Prospective buyers are advised to make their own enquiries in respect of planning, and any other consents or rights over the land prior to auction.

The plot will go up for auction with Auction House Cheshire, Staffordshire & Shropshire on Monday, March 11, with bidding open from 1pm.
