Full Details

Price: Offers in excess of £525,000 are sought for our clients interest


The site is situated at the end of Eleanor Street, backing onto the Leeds Liverpool Canal on the fringe of Blackburn town centre. All the town centre amenities are within walking distance. Eleanor Street is situated just off the A6078, which effectively forms a ring road around the town centre. Junctions 4, 5 and 6 of the M65 are all within 3 miles of the property in the East and South. The immediate area is characterised by a mixture of industrial and commercial units of various ages. To the south of Higher Audley Street is a local housing estate.


The property comprises a former mill site which has been cleared to create a secure plot of land providing a total area of one acre. The land had previously planning consent for the construction of a 88 bed four storey care home. The main section of the site is predominantly level and rectangular in shape, with a hard core/tarmac surface. A footpath runs down the edge of the east boundary and along the back of the site, giving access across the canal. Although the footpath is used by the public, it appears to fall within the subject title of the property in certain areas.


We have calculated that the site area is one acre


It is recommended that the buyer ensures that all mains services are available to the site.
