who we are

As long term landowners in the area, Bradford Estates is responsible for approximately 12,000 acres of land on the Shropshire border within the West Midlands.

We continually invest in our land and property, bringing together our local knowledge and historic heritage with future innovation.  We’re committed to doing things the right way and developing sustainable practices across farming, forestry and communities. The estates have contributed to the local economy for generations: providing housing and jobs, gifting land for schools and playgrounds, managing its fertile soils for forestry and farming, and supporting local heritage and culture.

The Bradford family has called the estates home for over 900 years and has a long tradition of placemaking and landscape management. Stewardship of their former urban estates led to the paving and lighting of Bolton and new public parks in Walsall and Greater Birmingham. The creation of green spaces 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.

Weston is an opportunity to benefit the whole of the local area for generations to come by providing jobs and homes for a net zero future in a sustainable community, built to endure.
