The soils are identified by the Soil Survey of England and Wales as being almost entirely from the “Foggathorpe 2” association, with their characteristics described as “slowly permeable stoneless clayey and fine loamy over clayey soils” and as suitable for “cereals and grassland”.

The traditional farm buildings could lend themselves to residential conversion, subject to obtaining planning consent. Any enquiry regarding this potential should be made to the planning department of Selby District Council on 01757 705101.
