Former Food Hall, Newport Market Hall, Stafford Street, Newport, Shropsihre, TF10 7LU.


Newport is a thriving market town in North Shropshire with a population of circa 15,000. It lies on the Shropshire and Staffordshire border approximately 6 miles north of Telford and 12 miles west of Stafford. The town enjoys easy access to Telford via the A518 and the A41 links with Junction 3 of M54 motorway some 7 miles to the north.

Newport benefits from a long established retail core along the High Street, which connects with St Mary's Street close to the centre of the town.

The property itself is situated within Newport Market Hall, a substantial two-storey Grade II listed building, which is located at the roundabout junction between High Street, Stafford Street and St Mary's Street. The building accommodates a number of local retail/commercial users including Just William, Gunero and Pulse Fitness. The subject property fronts onto the Stafford Street elevation.


The property comprises character accommodation within Newport Market Hall. The Italianate building was purpose built as an indoor market in 1860 and later utilised as a town hall and social venue with a courtroom on the ground floor.

The subject property is situated on the ground floor of the building and comprises a former food hall. The accommodation is self-contained with the main access directly off Stafford Street and a rear off St Mary's Street. It currently provides a large open plan area incorporating character features including exposed brickwork, arched iron framed windows and flagged floors.

The landlord intends to refurbish the accommodation to a high standard, to include the installation of private service facilities (toilets, kitchen and stores). Potential tenants' requirements/specification will be taken into account.

Outside, car parking is available in the shared car park to the rear of the building and in the large public car park at Stafford Street.
