LAND VALUES m WALES. On Monday the Flintshire Under Sheriff (Mr P. S. Kelly, of Mold) and a jury sat at Holywell for the purpose of determining the value of a piece of land at, Greenfield which the London and North- Western Railway Company require to purchase for the purpose of improvements in the vicinity of their Holywell station, and which forms part of the old disused works known as "Crockford's" works. Mr Cuthbert Smith appeared for Mr. Philip Jones, the owner of the land in L question, and Mr Eustace Mills for the railway company. Mr Smith explained that the piece of land was .514 square yards in area, and afforded access, by means of a siding, to the London and North-Western Railway Company's line from the works. Mr Jones had, the right to send stuff down, the old Holywell railway to the, dock at Green- field, which was the only outlet to the River Dee between Connah's Quay and Rhyl, a distance of 201 miles. Among the witnesses was Mr Caradoc Will'riams, engineer to the Dee Conser- vancy Board, who considered t'he land valuable, on accounts of its free access to the Ritver Dee. There was a scheme for the improvement of the Dee under con- sideration, and there might be a, contract signed during the next few months. What- ever was carried out, he, considered this land would be valuable as a site for works. Eventually the jury decided the value of the land to be, £ 103.
