With prices ranging from £20,000, there is something for all types of rural purchasers.

The grazing rights on the renowned Gunnerside Pasture for 10 cattle or 50 sheep are also expected to be much sought after.

Many of the lots also come complete with their own Yorkshire stone field barns. In addition, several of these lots are expected to achieve income from the various new environmental schemes.
