an old friend of mine was recently left this amount of land in a 'will' - so i wondered for comparison, whats equivalent to that land size - a football field?

Well at 400m x 100m I'd guess at 8 football stadiums arranged in a 2x4 formation (each 100mx50m).

Yes about 10 acres. 10 sq ft is roughly 1 sq m (actually 10.765 sq ft in 1 sq m), so 40,000 sq m is approximatly 400,000 sq ft.

40,000 sq ft is roughly 1 acre, so ists about 10 acres or so. Much more impressive if its a warehouse that big.

it'd be a square plot 200m or 656ft on a side (if it was square of course)

Depends whether you lay the square metres out side by side or stack them on top of each other.

So you could have a square pitch or do the dimensions have to be to the same ratio?

Its 4 hectares so lets say hypothetically you could get planning for residential on all of it you are talking 120-160 houses (at a density of around 30-40/hectare).

40,000 sq.m is also equivalent to around 4 B&Q Warehouses (they are normally around 10,000 sq.m).

If the land is in the UK and in an area suitable for development, please contact me off-list; I may be interested in purchase.
