The site comprises a substantial plot of vacant development land, which is self-contained and has direct access off Hortonwood 60. It currently comprises largely of open land, which is bounded by mature hedgerows, together with a surfaced car parking area to the front eastern corner, where the site is accessed.
There is little large scale development land at Hortonwood, with other large sites having been taken by owner occupiers or existing companies for expansion, therefore the subject land offers an excellent opportunity for a purchaser.
The site adjoins Wrap Film Systems premises to the north, but it should be noted that it is not associated with the business, which remains unaffected by the sale.
Telford New Town is located approximately 15 miles east of the county town of Shrewsbury, 17 miles west of Wolverhampton and 32 miles northwest of Birmingham city centre. The town is served by the M54 motorway, which links to the M6 at Junction 10a approximately 18 miles to the east, and the nearby Junction T8 of the M6 Toll. The A5 runs east-west through the town. The current population of circa 170,000 makes Telford the largest town in Shropshire with a much larger catchment area for employment purposes.
Hortonwood Industrial Estate is one of Telford's principal employment areas, situated at the intersection of the A442 Queensway dual carriageway and A518, approximately 2.5 miles north of the town centre with excellent access to Junctions 4 & 5 of the M54.
