November 2019 - Great Result!

Delighted to have obtained Planning Permission in just 6 weeks for conversion to holiday let in this exclusive and historic riverside location.

Situated at Torksey Lock, adjacent to the Grade II listed lock and footbridge, it offers a perfect location for tourists visiting Lincoln and the local heritage, including the Grade I listed Torksey Castle and Sustrans cycle and walking routes.

November 2019 - Lincolnshire Life

This month marks the start of our latest advertising campaign.

Wonderful to see the first of our latest adverts in print in the excellent property pages of the new November Edition of the Lincolnshire Life Magazine - available now!

OCTOBER 2019 - BETTER PERSPECTIVE!

We are now using our drone to take ultra high-res aerial photos from every angle.  This provides an unrivalled way of accessing and understanding our client's sites, including hard to reach areas, to gain a full and accurate perspective of the location.  It is especially good when surveying farmland, avoiding the need to disturb crops or livestock!

june 2019 - new office & website!

A perfect day to be out on the water! This is a view from outside our new offices at Torksey Lock on the Fossdyke canal, England’s oldest man-made waterway dating back to Roman Britain 2000 years ago. Later restored by King Henry I in 1121, in possibly the first ever canal restoration, this was a major trade route into Lincoln! We hope you like our new website too!
