The Land   Is good quality agricultural land separated into two parts by an internal drain. There will be a drainage rate but these are typically a few pounds per year. The Internal Drainage Board manage the water levels and drainage in the area. See Kings Lynn IDB  There is a good open area of grass at the front of the land and a comfrey bed to one side. There are no services laid on but a low voltage line passes over the estern bounday and the previous owner established an intricate rainwater collection system.  

The Cabin and shed   A robust and well-built cabin measuring approx 5.5 metres x 4.5 metres with a lean-to at the rear of 1.5 metres x 5.5 metres has plenty of space for overnighting while working on the land and in the woodland. There are two further sheds to the rear.  A very useful and solid store and open-fronted building (measuring 4.5m deep with 5m enclosed and 4.5 m open fronted) lies next to these. Both of these sets of buildings contain lots of bits of equipement and stores. They are all included in the sale and on balance there is more useful equipment than old bits and pieces which might need to be removed by the buyer. But the buildings are overgrown!
