LAND and fishing lakes just a short cast from the A465 Heads of the Valley trunk road are set to be auctioned on Friday.
The unusual property, which offers a stretch of natural scrub land and fish-stocked lakes, is at Waun-Y-Pound Road to the north of Ebbw Vale. It has a guide price of £15,000-plus.
Sean Roper, of Paul Fosh Auctions, which is selling the lot, said: “This is a rare opportunity for someone, perhaps an angler or coarse fisherman, to hook a substantial plot of land complete with fishing lakes. The lakes benefit from fishing rights which have been granted.
“Anyone with an interest in coarse fishing really ought to have a look at this really remarkable property as you don’t want to end up sounding like the fisherman telling people about the one that got away!
“The site is located to the north of the town of Ebbw Vale and to the west of the Morrisons supermarket. It’s very close to the arterial A465 Heads of the Valleys road and to the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park.
“The undeveloped land may have scope for some form of future development either as residential, commercial or for tourism perhaps as some kind of activity centre all subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
“There is a fishing agreement in place with a current rent of £1,000 a year with a stipulation to protect and preserve fishing stock in the lakes.”
The land and lakes at Waun-Y-Pound, near Ebbw Vale, is included in a catalogue of some 60 others properties which go up for sale this week on Friday, June 17, at the Paul Fosh Auctions sale at The Park Inn Hotel, Circle Way East, Llanedeyrn, and Cardiff, CF23 9XF. The auction starts at 5pm.
