The land offers prospective purchasers an opportunity to acquire a ring fenced block of agricultural land situated immediately to the south of the village of Shipham. The land is level to part and steeply sloping in gradient to the remainder and has an abundance of wildlife or bio-diversity potential with numerous scrub situated on the land offering an abundance of flora and fauna. The land would be ideally suited for its current use as agricultural land or alternatively as potential to be used for bio-diversity offsetting purposes or equestrian use subject to obtaining the necessary statutory consents.

The land is previously a former calamine mine and as such it has been listed as a Heritage Scheduled Monument under Historic England with this listing taking place on the 23rd November 2018. This relates to the northern section of the land only. Therefore, this limits what uses can be carried out on the land immediately adjacent to the village boundary.
The land in total extends to approximately 8.02 acres (3.24 ha) or thereabouts. The land is currently principally laid to permanent pasture with some areas on the steeper sloping ground having areas of scrub and trees to part. The land is classified as Grade III under the DEFRA Land Classification Map.

The land benefits from access leading directly from Glovers Field to the north which leads to a 5 bar gate providing good vehicular access into the land. There are footpaths which traverse the land with a wooden style being situated at the entrance gateway. The land is also situated within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The land is situated immediately to the south of the village of Shipham, near Winsombe in the county of North Somerset. The village of Shipham is situated on the western edge of the Mendip Hills being approximately 1 mile east of the A38 Bristol Road. The centre of the city of Bristol is situated approximately 15 miles to the north. The nearby town of Cheddar is situated approximately 3 miles to the south and junction 21 of the M5 motorway is approximately 7.5 miles to the north-west offering good road links to the surrounding motorway network.
