Shropshire land

Can anyone offer some places to keep checking in on for smaller fields for sale (6-9 acres)?

Already check onthemarket, ukfarmsandland, roger parry, barbers, newsnow. Seems like a lot of land is going to auction just now, is this always the case?
 
Morris Marshall and Poole have 11 acres advertised for sale near melverly, I don’t know the land but there’s a good chance it either floods or you won’t be able to get to it in a flood which might rule it out depending on what you want it for

Thanks very much. Yes I need well drained / not seasonally wet. We’ll be growing veg on it all year. 11 acres might be a bit beyond us, we’re hoping to find 6-8 acres assuming £10k per acre. We also need to be fussy which doesn’t help - well drained, not too high, as level as poss, within a few hundred meters to an electricity pole, a bit of road frontage and not overlooked. Wish us luck!

Guide price is 85k iirc but you’d need to check carefully about suitability, I suspect it wouldn’t be suitable for what you want.

From reading that I guess you are already, but join up with LWA they may be able to point you to an existing member you could hook up with.
