The Goole Estate

The Goole Estate is one of the highest quality commercial farming estates in northern England. The Estate lies within a renowned commercial farming district between the River Ouse and the Isle of Axholme approximately 8 miles east of Goole on the Lincolnshire/Yorkshire border.

The Estate extends to approximately 4,205 acres (1,701 hectares) with the majority being highly productive grade 1 and 2 farmland. The in-hand land, which is farmed as a single unit extends to approximately 4,087 acres (1,654 hectares). It is well suited to producing high yielding crops of wheat, barley, oilseed rape, potatoes, vining peas and sugar beet benefiting
from irrigation. The land lies predominantly within a ring fence plus two offlying blocks west of the main farm towards Goole.

The land is serviced by two reservoir complexes with a total capacity for 115,000m3 and various summer and winter abstraction licenses.

There has been significant investment in the infrastructure and crop storage facilities in recent years, which includes 10,400 tonnes of combinable crop storage and 3,500 tonnes of ambient controlled potato storage.

The residential portfolio includes the principal farmhouse, 3 further cottages and 2 redundant properties with potential for redevelopment.

The Estate includes renewable income streams through two wind farm leases including 16 turbines. There is also a roof mounted solar array on the farm buildings at Hall Corner.

In addition to the main farm there is one small investment farm totalling approximately 81 acres and a further parcel of land totalling 12 acres both let on Agricultural Holdings Act tenancies offering a buyer long term reversionary growth.

Whilst the Estate is primarily a versatile and top quality commercial farming operation, substantial amenity value is enhanced by the Blacktoft Sands which adjoin the northern
boundary of the estate and are the largest tidal reed beds in England. These are important breeding grounds for bitterns, bearded tits, avocets and marsh harriers. The sands lie within
the Humber Estuary Special Protection Area and are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. On the farm itself, work has been carried out in conjunction with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust on ditch management to protect and enhance the habitat for water voles.
