GENERAL REMARKS AND STIPULATIONS

AS TO LOTS 18 — 66.

The properties included in this Sale are now entirely surplus to the requirements of the Madeley Wood Company, who have decided to offer them for Sale at low Reserve Figures, hence the attentions of Investors and Agriculturalists, are especially drawn to this Sale.
The Farm is exceptionally well situated and would always command a good Rental.
The Accommodation Lands are good and well placed.
The Pitmounts provide enormous supplies of Clay suitable for bricks and some suitable for tiles; also slag, iron and ironstone, cinder, etc.
The Woodlands are very thriving.
The Cottages are occupied by a good class of Tenant generally. The advent of the proposed Scheme for supplying Electrical Power must almost inevitably bring fresh Industries into this District.
