The 18.76 acre land has been managed by a government programme called an Agri-environment scheme over the last 20 years.

The scheme aims to help and support farmers manage their land in an environmentally friendly way.

It is listed by Savills York, who believe there is significant potential for further enhancement and protection of the area.
