A landfill site is expected to attract plenty of interest when it goes under the hammer at auction later this month.
The site measures almost 13 acres and is located to the north east of Godmanchester.
According to auctioneers Cheffins, the site has been used in the past to extract gravel and clay but has remained dormant for a period of several years.
The land has a guide price of £650,000 and will go under the hammer on September 28.
Permission exists for the site to be restored back to a mineral extraction site, with the possibility of infilling inert waste, such as building waste.
With the construction of the new A14 expected to begin in the months ahead, the auctioneers anticipate a lot of interest from contractors.
The site also included two disused agricultural buildings and a water balancing area.

Ian Kitson, from Cheffins Auctioneers, said: “This is an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase an infill site. There are very few of these left in the region as we are experiencing such high levels of development around Cambridge.
“I suspect that the site will generate a huge amount of interest at the auction, as people look to reinstate it to its former use.”
