A roughly rectangular level parcel of land extending in total to about 1.87 hectares (4.62 acres).

The site is currently utilised as grazing land, but Outline Planning Permission was obtained in June 2018 for the erection of up to 45 dwellings on the site.


The site is situated on the eastern side of Linwood Road, a short drive to the south of Market Rasen town centre. Both the town train station and Tesco Superstore are located on Linwood Road to the south of the Town Centre.

Market Rasen is a popular Market Town situated mid-way between Lincoln and Grimsby, around 18 miles to the south and north respectively, via the A46 trunk road. The town sits on the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty and offers a good range of local amenities and is the home of De Aston School, one of the best regarded secondary schools in the County.

The site is situated in a attractive semi-rural location on the southern edge of the Town, with a modern housing estate to the north developed by Hugh Bourn some years ago and views over open farm land to the east and south.


We understand that mains supplies of water, drainage, electricity and gas are available in the vicinity of the site, but interested parties are advised to make their own enquires to the utility providers to ascertain the exact location and capacity of each supply in the area.
