Full description

Description: The site has an approximate area of 75.80 Ha (185 acres).
The main access to the site is off the A356. The front of the site extends to approximately 10 acres and includes a number of buildings totalling approximately 6,156 sq m (66,264 sq ft). The balance of the 10 acres has been used for open storage purposes for many years.
The main building with accommodation over basement, ground and first floors was historically used as the main transmission centre for the BBC World Service. Equipment has been decommissioned and is ready for clearance.
Outbuildings have been used for workshop and storage purposes.
Within the Commercial section of the site are two electrical substations held by SSE on long leasehold basis. Access rights are reserved to the substations.
The Vendor will reserve an option on approximately ½ acre in the western front corner of the site for battery storage purposes.
Within the SSSI Grazing Land three masts remain generating current rental income of £25,375
Natural England have recently confirmed that the land of some 177 acres is ‘recovered SSSI’ and is now deemed suitable as working grazing land. A s106, linked with an adjacent solar park, applies which is in the process of being amended with the aim of allowing Basic and Stewardship payments to be claimed. All obligations under the s106 will remain with the Vendor.
The grazing land will be sold with vacant possession but has letting potential.
