There is a small brick built building on the site, now derelict and measuring approx. 33 sq.m. The remainder of the site comprises redundant inflled flters and tanks. Most of the area is now overgrown. The site is bounded by a concrete post and net security fence which is insecure in places and there is easy access into the site. The property is mainly surrounded by farmland with a track leading to the site from the housing located to the north west. Prospective purchasers are advised to check site access provision, the details of which are included within the title pack.
