The guide price for the land was £30,000-£35,000 bidding was tense but with two very interested parties the final hammer price was way over guide price and sold for £67,000.
Lot number 2 was a parcel of amenity woodland approx. 0.45 acres (0.18 hectares) on the south of the Malvern Hills. The guide price for the woodland was £5,000- £10,000 and after a lot of interest in the property it sold for £9,000
