Description

***FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER AT A GUIDE PRICE OF £10,000.00*** APPROXIMATELY 5 ACRES OF LAND BORDERING THE CANAL BASIN. We are pleased to offer for sale FIVE INDIVIDUAL POCKETS OF LAND totalling approximately 5 acres. Situated in the beautiful Peak District, ideal for anyone wanting to own land in this stunning setting. “The Terminus Basin is a Scheduled Ancient Monument with a long history of industrial use . There are many footpaths that can be taken to Bugsworth Basin including a short detour from the Goyt Way, just before bridge 34, along the canal into the Basin. The Goyt Way is a 10 mile easy access walk from Whaley Bridge to Etherow Country Park. The route initially follows the towpath of the Peak Forest Canal and later the path of the River Goyt.


The FREEHOLD land is for sale as a whole and will not be available for sale as individual plots. The land can not be built on any prospective purchaser would have to make their own enquiries of the planning authority, and also Historic England due to the proximity of the Scheduled Ancient Monument and there are no agricultural ties.  


Historic England have advised: Any land within the scheduled monument would be subject to the Ancient Monument and Archaeological Areas Act 1979. Any ‘works’ (see definition as per Section 2 of the Act here) would require Scheduled Monument Consent. That would include proposals for ‘development’ as well as activities like fencing, repairs or other groundworks. Permitted Development rights do not apply to scheduled monuments. There are various other particulars within the 1979 Act, including controls on things like metal detecting and archaeological works on these sites. The purpose of scheduling is to protect and conserve nationally important sites, persevering the things which make them significant. While some change may be possible, there is a presumption that they will be handed on to future generations in much the same state that we have found them. We would not support works or development within the scheduled monument which might be inappropriate or cause unjustified harm to its overall significance. Where works might be permitted these have to have clear and convincing justifications, will all impacts minimised and the level of any harm has to be outweighed by public benefits.

 Plots 4 and 5 are adjacent to the scheduled monument unless on the boundary with the monument, works within Plots 5 and 4 would not need SMC; however they would need planning permission and detailed consultation with Historic England and the Local Planning Authority. There is importance in these sites in terms of their relationship with the scheduled monument and their archaeological potential. We are unlikely to support proposals which negatively impact and cause harm to the setting of the scheduled monument, or which damages or destroys import related archaeological remains.
