Land at Barbers Bridge

Split into predominantly 5 paddocks, the land is extremely versatile and suitable for a variety of uses including agricultural, equine and business use, for anyone wanting to run their own fishery. The land has been run organically for the last 25 years and no fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides have been used on it.
There is direct access of the main road (the B4125) which runs between Gloucester and Newent.
The first 2 paddocks (of about 1.4 acres) offer a large hard-standing yard area with the remainder being pasture. This area is not subject to any potential flooding.
There is another large, level paddock which borders the River Leadon and contains a shelter belt of Poplars, some Oak trees, Willows and a good-sized wildlife pond. This paddock extends around the fishing ponds, culminating in another small paddock containing numerous young trees of Oak, Willow and Ash.
The 2 fishing ponds are situated in their own fenced off paddock. There is one pond of about 1 acre and another a little larger at about 1.25 acres. The depths in one range from about 3ft - 35ft deep, and in the other, 3ft - 8ft deep. Both are stocked with coarse fish, Rudd, Roach, Bream, Tench and Carp, some of which are 20lb +.
The River Leadon frontage runs to just over 500 yards and the land benefits from riparian rights to this.


The land can flood a couple of times a year, coinciding with the two highest tides of the year. Any flooding of the land generally only lasts 2-3 days. The access, yard and 2 small paddocks are unaffected by any flooding and the remainder of the land can still be access with a 4x4.


Mains water not available to the land but can be supplied/negotiated. There is an adequate, natural water supply. No electricity or private/mains drainage.

Local Authority

Forest of Dean District Council: 01594 810000.


The land is not registered for BPS (Basic Payment Scheme, formerly Single Farm Payment).

Public Access

There are NO footpaths or Bridleways that cross the land.

Restrictive Covenants/Rights

There are NO restrictive covenants on the land. The Herefordshire Canal Trust do have a right to extract water from the stream if required (but not from the river).


The region is synonymous with the equestrian world and the renowned Hartpury College is only 2½ miles away. Allens Hill and Moores Farm Equestrian Centre are also easily accessible and both are host to a series of affiliated and unaffiliated shows and events throughout the year. Annual horse trials take place locally at Homme House and the Three Counties Showground at Malvern is easily accessible.
