Property Reference



Former Madeley Testing Centre, Ironbridge Road, Madeley, Shropshire, TF7 5JU.


Madeley is an established market town, which forms one of the district centres of Telford New Town. It lies in the southern part of Telford, approximately 5 miles from Telford Town Centre and just to the north of the historic Ironbridge and the River Severn.

The property itself enjoys a prominent roadside position along Ironbridge Road, approximately half a mile west of the district centre. Abraham Darby Academy is located close by, together with the B4373 Parkway Road, providing access to Ironbridge in the south and the A4169 and A442 in the north and east.


The property comprises a development site extending to approximately 0.38 acres, which currently accommodates a former MOT testing station and garage premises. The existing buildings comprise a reception area and WC facilities to the front with attached workshop, and further adjoining workshops arranged in four bays. There is also a lean-to structure to the rear, which provides an additional workshop bay.

Outside, to the front of the site is a part concrete and part tarmacadam surfaced forecourt with canopy over, which was originally a petrol filling station but has most recently been utilised for open storage purposes. The site is secure with two gated vehicular access points directly onto Ironbridge Road.

The property has planning permission for residential development, including the demolition of the existing workshop buildings - see Planning section.
