A rare opportunity to acquire 25.15 acres - 10.20 hectares of mature parkland and mixed woodland bordering to the River Greet on the edge of Southwell.
Normanton Park is an area of mature parkland bordering to the River Greet on the northern edge of Southwell, being managed principally as grassland (15.80 acres / 6.40 hectares) sheltered by a perimeter belt of woodland which widens substantially along the southern boundary, following the course of the River Greet.
The land has a spring fed water supply feeding a livestock drinking trough within the field and it is understood there is a connection to a mains water supply situated close to the main entrance into the park from Normanton Lane – as indicated by the arrow on plan.
The perimeter woodland belt shaded green on plan consists mainly of a mature hardwood species (horse chestnut, beech, oak and sycamore), with more dense coniferous planting within the main block of woodland, part of which has been recently cleared to make way for replanting, or possible restoration to parkland.
The existence of a natural spring may allow the creation of a fishing lake on the lower ground towards the southwest corner of the park – subject to statutory planning considerations.
