Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire a single building plot of approximately 0.16 acre ( 0.006 ha) together with a large detached disused "barn" which requires improvements and a pasture field with coppice of approximately 1.32 acres ( 0.534 ha).
Total area approximately 1.48 acres ( 0.6 ha).

Situated in a prime position of Ironbridge which lies in a conservation area and approx 800m from Ironbridge Town Centre. A renowned and historic former industrial town nestling in The Severn Gorge, the river Severn cutting its way through the steep and wooded slopes of The Gorge forms one of the most striking and distinctive landscapes in England and worthy of its World Heritage Site designation.

The local architecture varies from the elegant houses of the former Ironmasters to the charming rows of artisans cottages stepping purposefully down the Northern slopes - a contrast to the wooded slopes to the South.

This remarkable area was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and became world famous in 1779 when the world's first Iron Bridge was cast at nearby Coalbrookdale. The area is steeped in industrial heritage with local museums including the renowned Blists Hill Victorian Town Open Air Village at nearby Madeley and the world famous china works at Coalport.

Ironbridge is surrounded by lovely Shropshire countryside, dominated by the nearby Wrekin, Shropshire's highest hill. From its summit there are views over much of the county and to the North the contrasting landscape of the Shropshire plain.

Adjoining Ironbridge is the former New Town of Telford Town which offers an excellent range of shopping and recreational facilities together with a railway station with a direct service to Birmingham and London. There is easy access to the M54, linking with the M6 giving access to Birmingham and from the M6 Toll there is a connection to the M42 and M40.

Full planning approval granted on 27th September 2012, for the erection of a two storey three bedroom detached family house, subject to conditions. Planning reference: TWC/2012/0485 Telford & Wrekin Council 01952 380380. Visit their website and enter the reference number to obtain all relevent documents and plans relating to the permission.
