GENERAL REMARKS AND STIPULATIONS

AS TO LOTS 1 — 17.

The Anstice family have been connected with the Town of Madeley for more than 100 years, and this Sale follows the disposal of other long standing interests in the District and provides opportunities both for occupation and investment.

The Farms are at once remarkable for the excellence of the Land and for their good condition, and if additions in the way of Land or Cottages are deemed advisable, the Sale affords either subject.

The Madeley Wood Company having decided to sell their Properties, it has been possible to arrange between the two Vendors that Lots 2 and 4 shall be sold with Lots 18 and 19 respectively, which will be highly advantageous to Purchasers.
