The Land 

This extends to about 90 acres (36.42 hectares) in area and is made up of eight fields of permanent grass with a small grazing paddock to the rear of the dutch barn. There is good access to most of the fields, either off the access track or directly from the farm steading, and they are either watered from natural sources or from field troughs fed from the mains supply. The land lies at a height of between 60 to 90 metres (200 to 300 feet) above sea level and most of it can be described as gently undulating and capable of being improved although there are some steep banks in field No. 6 on the Farm Plan adjoining the River Sark.
