An opportunity to acquire a block of grazing marshes extending in all to approximately 9.83 Ha (24.29 Ac) over three parcels on the fringe of the village of Rockland St Mary. Access to the marshes is off Lower Road and then by Right of Way over another marsh.

Internal gates provide access between each parcel with drainage dykes forming the boundaries to the land. In the third parcel is a small pond. In addition, there are a number of foot bridges between the parcels.

The marshes have previously been let on annual grazing licences and grazed with cattle. Alongside this there may be opportunities for other schemes such as Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG), the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) or Carbon Capture.

From Norwich take the A146 towards Beccles. Continue under the A47 dual carriageway and bear left onto Kirby Road - signposted for Claxton and Rockland St Mary. Continue on this road for approximately 5.0 miles passing through the village of Bramerton where you will arrive in the centre of Rockland St Mary. Continue along The Street /New Inn Hill/
Lower Road for another 500 yards and the access point to the marshes will be found on your left handside (just after No. 4 Lower Road which will be on your right).
