A prominent parcel of pasture and woodland on the banks of the tidal Teign Estuary


A prominent parcel of pasture and woodland on the banks of the tidal Teign Estuary • Gently sloping pasture • Well fenced • Panoramic views • Woodland fringe and individual trees • Frontage to the Teign Estuary • Vehicular access from the lane • About 14 acres in all Situation The land lies on and with frontage to the south bank of the estuary of the tidal River Teign. The river channel and the intertidal mudflats dominate the landscape, and along with the enclosing hills and expansive cross-estuary views form an important part of this beautiful part of Devon. The appearance of the estuary changes markedly depending on the state of the tide - from full of water and effectively a branch of the sea at high tide, to extensive mud flats with much activity from seabirds and waders when the tide recedes. From the land there are widespread views out to the surrounding landscapes, including the high ground of Dartmoor to the east and the ever-changing estuary it adjoins. The area is readily accessible via the A380 dual carriageway that links to the motorway network at Exeter. The immediate access to the land is from Hackney Lane which is an unmade (but passable in a car) public lane. Description The land forms a compact parcel of mainly pasture gently sloping down to a strip of native hardwood trees along the foreshore of the estuary. The single enclosure is well fenced and has a gated access from Hackney Lane. Within the field there are a couple of specimen trees and an old pit that accommodates further broadleaved trees. Along the foreshore, runs part of the Templer Way an 18-mile footpath that follows the historic route that worked granite for building took from the quarries on Dartmoor to the docks at Teignmouth. There are no Basic Payment entitlements offered for sale with the land. There is a water trough on the land supplied from the adjoining owner's private supply. The purchaser may continue to draw water for agricultural use on condition of installing a sub metre and paying for use. Directions From Exeter take the A38 south towards Plymouth but then fork left onto the A380 towards Newton Abbot. At Newton Abbott leave the A380 and bear left at the traffic lights at the bottom of the slip road. Follow the signs for Combe in Teignhead on Shaldon Road. About ¼ outside the built-up area take the first turning left signposted Lower Netherton. After a further ¼ mile, the lane bears sharply to the right and Hackney Lane runs straight on by the Cricket Club. There is currently no space for parking by the field as the gate is locked so leave your car on this top junction and walk down Hackney Lane to the field gate on the right towards the bottom of the hill.
