SOLD: Athelstan Meadow £35,000 Freehold

  • Intwood, Norwich, Norfolk
  • about 2 ¾ acres
  • East Anglia


Finding a secure well fenced paddock within 5 miles of the centre of Norwich is a rare thing. Athelstan Meadow offers the buyer just this. From the paddock the owner can access directly onto a bridleway yet they also have a solid tarmac track to the entrance of the paddock so access is good all year around.

Two locked gates separate the paddock from the highway along with a number of thick hedges which ensure not only visual screening but also a high level of security. The paddock is also fenced with high quality horse net fencing and a new metal gate.

The meadow is named after King Athelstan who ruled over this part of England . In the years between 924 and 939 Norwich became fully established as a town, with its own mint. The word Norvic appears on coins across Europe minted during this period along with the head of King Athelstan. Of interest is the that the Vikings were a strong cultural influence in Norwich for 40 to 50 years of the 9th century, setting up an Anglo-Scandinavian district At end of the 9th century the city was one of the largest in England. It seems Norwich has always been a place to invest.

The land is well drained and level and could be used for a multiple of uses from grazing horses to livestock or an owner could create a new woodland within the paddock area. Located within the Norwich city ring road and under 5 miles from the city centre this is a valuable piece of real estate which will also be attractive to the long term investor.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Matt Marples

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
