Hello there. I was wondering if someone could help me please. I need to find out who owns a piece of land so that I can contact them. If you go from the Snowdrop pub on South Street and travel south along the A26 towards the roundabout which has the turnoff for the A27, there is a railway bridge across the Ouse. Just south of the bridge there is a concreted area. It looks like it is used for strorage or light industrial and I believe there is a gated turn off just before the roundabout that leads down to this area. Would anyone have an idea of how I could contact whoever owns this land please?below is map reference on google maps if this helps. Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

I'm sure someone on here will know, but if you want to check you can go to the 'online land register' (sorry couldn't paste link) and follow the instructions. Costs 3 per search.

Hi there. It's 35 pounds for a title search and we are worried that it will come up as British Rail (which is what we believe). But now this has been privatised, this may not give us any useful information as BR was broken up into so many different companies. Does that make sense??? Thanks

Tanya, why do you want to know who owns this land and what are your motives?

Wasn't this land used as an illegal caravan park a few years ago?
