The smithy is located at Newcastle On Clun near to Clun and Craven Arms and is on sale with McCartneys estate agents on

The detached one-story building is made of stone and block, with a slate roof and has approximately 1.27 acres of amenity land.

While pictures of the property show that it is in need of some repair – with broken windows – it has a great deal of character, fit with a rustic wooden door.

But perhaps the most striking amenity is the small Royal Mail postbox located on the front wall of the property.

Parking is available and there is also a brook adjoining the North West boundary.

Viewing appointments for the smithy are strictly by appointment with the agents– McCartneys Rural Department (Option 1).

The advert on Rightmove reads: 'The sale of the land presents an opportunity for someone to acquire a parcel of land suitable for a variety of amenity uses with further potential subject to the relevant planning permissions being obtained.
