Traditional rural estate management has remained at the heart of our business since the practice was established in 1970. Over many years Acland Bracewell Surveyors Limited has continually developed to become one of the leading firms of Land Agents and Chartered Surveyors in the North West of England advising on rural property issues in the countryside and on the urban fringe.

The practice provides expertise in a range of matters such as property management, planning and development, sales and lettings, easements and wayleaves, valuation and telecommunications. Building on our good connections and local knowledge we are able to bring together our professional expertise with your land to maximise its potential.


Our staff are all qualified Chartered Surveyors specialising in rural and commercial property matters and those staff having the initials FAAV after their name have also passed the rigorous CAAV professional examinations.
