A slice of the Jurassic Coast extending more than 37 acres with historic Second World War pillboxes and a lookout at Burton Bradstock is going under the hammer.

The land at Lookout Farm, with stunning panoramic views across the famous Chesil Beach in West Dorset, has a freehold guide price of £295,000 to £370,000.

Located off the Bridport to Weymouth coast road, it is among the lots listed for sale by the regional land and property actioneers Clive Emson on July 26.

Auctioneer Graham Barton said: “This is an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire more than 37 acres (15 hectares) of land with views of the Jurassic Coast and famous Chesil Beach, which featured in the acclaimed film On Chesil Beach.

“The views are panoramic and breath-taking from all over but particularly from its Second World War pillboxes and lookout which have some of the most stunning and glorious vistas on the south coast.

“We expect the property to appeal to a number of different sectors, including those with hobby, recreational and amenity interests including farming and equestrianism.

“Alternatively, the development fraternity may have a more commercial use in mind for the existing structures and land subject to the necessary consents.”

The lot is being auctioned jointly with Kennedys estate agents of Bridport.

It will be on offer at Clive Emson Auctioneers’ next regional auction at the St Mellion International Resort, St Mellion, Cornwall, at 11am on Thursday July 26. Visit for more details
