Would you like to own a piece of historic Suffolk landscape?

Agents Fenn Wright are offering for sale Purdis Heath, land to the north of the Suffolk Show Ground and approximately two miles from the centre of Ipswich.

Purdis Heath is recognised as being one of the best remnants of a formerly extensive attractive heathland which lays to the east of Ipswich and forms the southern limit of the “sandlings” heaths of East Suffolk.

The overall property, designated by Natural England as access land subject to the CRoW Act, extends to approximately 17 hectares (42.04 acres) and is being offered for sale for offers in excess of £100,000.

The heath includes areas of heather, acid grassland together with stands of bracken, gorse and birch, together with important flora and fauna. The site favours the silver-studded blue butterfly together with the common blue and small heath butterflies.

Secondary woodland of young oak and birch is confined mainly to the outlined parts of the site and supports a variety of birds including nightingale, white throat, willow warbler and tawny owl.

The majority of the property is subject to the Ipswich Heaths SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) however, the belts of woodland, parallel to Purdis Avenue and Bucklesham Road, are excluded from the SSSI.

The land is classified as heathland and as such would not have potential for residential development. In recent years has been managed by the Butterfly Conservation Group.

New management has been found for several schools in Suffolk and north Essex formerly run by the controversial academy trust Bright Tribe.
