Situated approximately 10 miles north east of Sheffield and lying between Barnsley & Doncaster, the Dearne Valley was designated as an enterprise zone in 1995, which has now expired. Since that time it has been transformed by the creation of some 10,000 new jobs occupying a wide range of new commercial developments.

The area has excellent road links which lead to Junction 36 of the M1 to the west and to Junction 36 of the A1 (M) to the east. Mainline rail services are available from nearby Doncaster, whilst Leeds Bradford Airport and Doncaster Airport are within easy motorway drives.

We understand that the area has a population of approximately 90,000 persons in established centres such as Wath upon Dearne, Mexborough, Swinton and Conisborough. However, there are nearly 400,000 within a 20 minute drive and including the surrounding centres of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham, there are around 1.25m people.

Whilst historically, employment was largely centred on the coal industry, it is now widely spread across the office, retail, distribution, manufacturing and service sectors.


Humphrey Davy House is situated at the eastern end of the Dearne Valley where much of the new commercial development has taken place. Other occupiers in the immediate vicinity include Powergen, Ikea, Ventura, Royal Bank of Scotland and the Pension Service.

The Site:

It is calculated that the site comprises some 0.92 hectares (2.27acres) as shown on the adjoining OS Plan.

The property is long leasehold in tenure and expires in August 2122 at a ground rent of 50 per annum fixed. The vendor has an option to purchase the freehold in 2015 for 1 and a pre-emption right to purchase this interest any time after 2022 may be available. Please note that there is a right of way to the adjoining site across part of the subject site.

The Property:

The subject building comprises of an imposing academic building constructed over ground and three upper floors. We understand that the building was completed in 1998 and is of steel framed construction with brick cladding and powder coated double glazed aluminium windows.

Internally the accommodation has been provided with permanent internal partitions with a typical floor containing corridors along the centre of each wing with offices, teaching areas and ancillary rooms to either side. The second floor is slightly different in that one of the wings of the building has been laid out to provide a well lit open plan library area. The third floor area is smaller than the other floors, as it occupies only one wing of the building and again this mainly comprises of teaching rooms and a largely open plan feel with larger room sizes.

The premises have been fitted out to a good overall standard and include quality carpeting to most of the classroom, teaching and admin areas, gas central heating, suspended ceilings having Category 2 lighting and some air-conditioning.


The premises provide the following approximate net internal areas:
