PROUD STEWARDS

Bradford Estates
Here to stay

Long term landowners in the local area since Norman times, Bradford Estates now takes responsibility for approximately 12,000 acres on the Shropshire border with the West Midlands. Led by the principle of stewardship, Bradford Estates continuously invests in its land and property with the future in mind, yet always guided by heritage, local knowledge and a commitment to doing things the right way.  

The Bradford family has a tradition of placemaking and landscape management on their former urban estates, Bolton, Wigan and Walsall, such as the original paving and lighting of streets and the creation of public parks. Bradford Estates is dedicated to guiding Weston through the life cycle of design, development and eventually managing the legacy of Weston.  

Always committed to creating places responsive to local needs, Bradford Estates’ intention is to work closely with the community at every stage to deliver a truly inclusive new place.

The Bradford family has a long tradition of placemaking and landscape management. Stewardship of their former urban estates led to canal building in Shropshire, the paving and lighting of Bolton and new public parks in Walsall and Greater Birmingham. The creation of green space included the 18th century commission of Capability Brown at Weston Park and creation of 19th century pleasure grounds, such as the White Sitch and Tong Mere.

We continuously invest in our land and property with the future in mind. Guided by our heritage, knowledge and a commitment to doing things the right way, we develop sustainable practices across farming, forestry and placemaking.
