VALUABLE ESTATE,
Coal and Ironstone under the same,
FREEHOLD, TYTHE-FREE, AND LAND-TAX REDEEMED.


TO be sold by AUCTION, by W. HANDY and Co. on Monday the 15th June, 1818, at Mr. Blewitt’s, the Hotel, at Dudley, in the County of Worcester, precisely at 5 o’Clock in the Afternoon, subject to such Conditions of Sale as will be then and there produced;—a small desirable Farm, know by the Name of WYTHYMOOR MILL; consisting of a decent Farm House, with necessary Outbuildings, and 27 Acres (more or less) of extremely rich Arable, Meadow, and Pasture Land, the Whole lying within a Ring Fence, divided in nearly equal Quantities by the Dudley and Netherton Canal, which passes through the Centre of the Estate. The Whole of the Surface Lands are now, and for many Years past, have been in the occupation of Mr. David Walker, at the yearly Rent of 84l. and are situate in the Parish of Rowley Regis, in the County of Stafford, on the Confines of the County of Worcester, and within about 1 Mile of the Market Town of Dudley.
The MINES of COAL and IRONSTONE supposed to be under this Estate, are immense and invaluable; it adjoins the Knowle Colliery, which is now in full Work; and the Coal there is proved to be of excellent Quality, and eleven Yards thick, the regular Mine.
The peculiar Advantage of this Work will possess is beyond all Calculation from its situation, the Canal passing through their own Land, in the very Centre of the Estate, where all the Basins, Rail Roads, &c. that are necessary to carry on the Works may be made, without any interference with other Property.
The great Furnaces of Messrs. Attwoods and Co. also the extensive Collieries of Lord Dudley and Major St. Paul, nearly adjoin, but few of them have the Advantage of this Estate, it being immediately upon the Line of the Canal that communicates with Birmingham, Worcester, &c. Their is also 20 Pounds per Annum paid by the Knowle Colliery Company, for the Use of a Railway and Landing Wharfe upon this Farm.
To view the Premises apply to Mr. David Walker, the Tenant; and for further Particulars to Mr. Edward Bridgewater, of Rowley Regis; C. Norbury, Esq. Droitwich; or the Auctioneers, Worcester, who have a Map and terrier of the same.



Note ease of Rail Road construction and existing Railway.
