The property comprises a unique single storey brick built workshop / warehouse, probably dating from the late Victorian Period and separate WC block & storage room with a gross internal area of circa 333.5 square metres (3,585 square feet) and occupying a site of approximately 0.086 acres. 

The property is accessed via an undercroft access through a secure gate off of Hercules Street. There are rights of way over the accessway and courtyard area (highlighted blue on the OS plan available to download from our website) located between the two separate parts of the title, also shown on the OS plan.

Apart from the development potential that could be realised by exploring possible reconfiguration of the existing space and alternative uses, there may be potential for complete redevelopment of the site, subject to the necessary planning consents.
