A SMALL plot of land at a Wilmslow beauty spot is going under the hammer.

The unusual plot of land is at The Carrs, a sprawling 71-acre park in Cheshire.

Measuring just 0.005 acres, it is heading to auction next month, with a guide price of £8,500.

The site for sale is located on the south side of Bollin Hill, close to the main walking route along the River Bollin.

Current owners Asset Invest believe the plot provides an excellent opportunity to run pop-up events or as a permanent refreshment pit-stop for park visitors.

The small plot is in a prime position close to a picnic area and described as an ‘ideal plot for possible commercial venture, subject to planning’.

Enjoyed by thousands of visitors a year, The Carrs is a popular spot for scenic walks, river paddling and summer picnics.

For those interested in opening their own community café, the site is perfectly placed to capture passing trade, occupying a prime position in the designated picnic area on the banks of the river.

The freehold land listing hit the market earlier this month and will be offered in an online auction on Monday, March 11, with bidding open for 24 hours only.

Accessed via Cliff Road, the unused land plot also has potential as a recreational area or private allotment.

Prospective buyers are advised to make their own enquiries in respect of planning, and any other consents or rights over the land prior to auction.

With seven people already ‘watching’ the lot and waiting for bidding to open, it’s proving to be a speculative opportunity.

The unusual plot goes up for sale by online auction with Auction House Cheshire, Staffordshire & Shropshire on Monday, March 11, with bidding open at 1pm.
