Land and Buildings, Great Hales Street, Market Drayton, Shropshire, TF9 1JW.


The property is situated close to Market Drayton town centre, at the junction of Great Hales Street with Phoenix Bank and High Street. It is conveniently located for the town centre, as well as for the main road leading to The Four Alls and Hinstock.

Market Drayton lies on the Staffordshire border midway between Shrewsbury and Stoke on Trent, approximately 20 miles north of Junction 6 of the M54 motorway, via the A442. The A53 road also bypasses the town. Telford is located approximately 20 miles to the south and Cheshire is 30 miles to the north.

Market Drayton enjoys a large rural catchment area, supplying all local services, as well as being home to a range of manufacturing businesses associated with agricultural use, including Palethorpes and Muller Dairies.


The property comprises a former commercial yard and premises, on a self-contained site which lies on Great Hales Street, close to its junction with Phoenix Bank. The site has been vacant for some time.

The site currently incorporates a two-storey former retail/office building to the front, which fronts directly onto Great Hales Street, and was most recently occupied as an retail showroom, complete with tarmacadam forecourt. However, as the building has been vacant for a while, it is in need of modernisation and improvement. Other former commercial uses include a garage with petrol filling station and forecourt.

To the centre of the site is a vehicular ramp providing access to the rear of the site, which incorporates a detached former agricultural machinery workshop and storage canopy, complete with concrete yard.
