Thanks for your question - I am Sam and I am one of the UK tax experts.
Yes you would have capital gains to pay (which might be elevated by entrepreneurs relief if the land has been used within a trade for the last 3 years)
This would be formed by the value of the land now at market value, less the purchase/acquisition cost of the land (or value in 1982 due to rebasing) this would form the initial gain -
Then this amount would be shared out among the owners - from which he first £11,100 would be tax free (as this is your annual exemption allowance) and then either charged at 18% and/or 28% (depending on each of the individuals annual income) or at 10% if entrepreneurs relief applied.
