The property is a traditionally built steel portal framed industrial unit with cavity brickwork and insulated profile steel cladding walls and a double pitched roof of insulated corrugated asbestos cement sheet covering incorporating recently replaced translucent rooflights.

Internally the property has concrete floors throughout and a clear span without columns of 45m. The internal clear height is 3.6m rising to 9.6m at the apex. The previous occupier has installed a gantry crane to the centre section of the building which carries two 10 ton cranes with a hook height of approximately 7m. The cranes and steelwork are freestanding and can be removed if the intending occupier doesn’t require them.

The property has previously been extended to the rear to provide a loading bay at the end of the side service yard.

The property was originally constructed for food distribution and as such has a considerable number of loading doors including 6 roller shutter doors along the southern elevation, 3 insulated sectional loading doors to the rear loading bay and a further loading door to the front (east elevation).

To the front of the warehouse is a small two storey office and welfare facility which is still under refurbishment but only requires a relatively small amount of work to complete.

Externally there is a large tarmacadam forecourt to the front of the premises providing parking and vehicle access to the large loading door and there is further concrete yard area to the side giving access to the remaining loading doors. The entire site is enclosed by a steel palisade fence and there are double access gates from Industrial Road.

The property benefits from all mains services including a substantial three phase electricity supply. Heating is provided to the factory area by way of wall mounted gas fired blower heaters and lighting is by way of low bay halide units.
