This site comprises principally of three main buildings plus some further outbuildings and undeveloped land accessed off a private roadway forming part of the title, but partly shared with the adjoining occupiers.

Building 1 is a traditional steel portal framed structure with cavity brickwork and insulated cladding to the elevations and a double pitched roof with an insulated corrugated asbestos cement sheet covering. Within the envelope of the building is a 2 storey office and ancillary block providing a range of open plan and cellular rooms as well as office and works welfare areas.

The factory space has a clear height of 7.2m and is divided into a series of sections although none of the walls are structural and as such could be removed as required.

It has a series of vehicular access points to the perimeter but principally to the southern elevation where there is a large concrete apron serving 2 loading doors.

Building 2 is a former manufacturing space formed in two sections, the older part of which is of brickwork construction with a corrugated asbestos cement sheet roof and the more recent extension of steel profile cladding and sheeting. The older part of the building contains a series of offices and welfare areas and the new extension benefits from a loading bay to its northwest corner.

Building 3 is a purpose built warehouse constructed in the late 1980’s which is also steel framed with profile steel cladding to the walls and roof areas. Internally it provides largely open plan space and a clear height of 8.93 m. There are a series of single storey offices and welfare rooms within the unit and on the western elevation a large drive through covered loading bay.

Buildings 4 & 5 comprise a small storage unit and a former boiler house, which has been largely stripped of all its plant.

There is an area of undeveloped land immediately south of the boiler house (Ref 6) giving the opportunity for further development or hardstanding and on the west side of the site is the main car park

The site benefits from all mains utility supplies and drainage is connected to the adopted sewers. There is a substantial electricity infrastructure serving the site with a total transformer capacity of 5.5 MVA. The gas supply to site is from two 150mm medium pressures mains and water is from metered supplies to each of the main Buildings which are between 30mm and 50mm diameter
