Property Reference



Metal & Waste House, Lightmoor Road, Little Dawley, Telford, Shropshire, TF4 3QN.


The new town of Telford is located approximately 15 miles from Junction 10a of the M6 motorway, with Wolverhampton 18 miles to the east and Birmingham city centre 35 miles to the south. The county town of Shrewsbury is 15 miles away via the M54 motorway and A5 trunk road.

The property itself occupies a semi-rural location off Lightmoor Road on the outskirts of the small town of Dawley. The site lies just off the A442 providing access to Telford Town Centre and Junction 4 of the M54 approximately 4 miles distant. There is some residential development to the rear and nearby commercial occupiers include RHP Transport.


The property comprises a secure site of circa 3.9 acres providing a substantial metal recycling facility incorporating a modern detached industrial unit and two-storey office accommodation, extensive yard/open storage space and on site car parking. The property is currently utilised for the recycling, processing and storage of scrap metal.

The unit is positioned to the southeast of the site and comprises a detached single storey warehouse of portal frame construction with a concrete floor and steel profile cladding to the elevations and roof, having Perspex roof lights. Vehicular access is afforded via two full height roller shutter doors on the front elevation and a further roller shutter door to the side, which also incorporates a canopy and loading bay. Internally, the warehouse has sodium lighting throughout and benefits from integral two-storey blockwork offices including kitchen, WC and shower facilities.

Adjoining the warehouse to the eastern elevation is a two-storey office block providing a sales counter and general offices on the ground floor with further offices and a staff rest room on the first floor. The offices benefit from modern flush ceilings lights throughout.

Externally, the perimeter of the site is secured by steel palisade fencing with a gated access to the front. It provides extensive yard and open storage space, which is predominantly concreted and includes a car parking area upon entrance to the site and a high-walled dismantling area to the northeastern corner. There is also a digitally operated weigh-bridge.

Also on site are three telecommunication masts, which are currently operated by O2, Orange and Vodaphone.
