Property Reference



Grindley Brook Mill, Grindley Brook, Whitchurch, Shropshire, SY13 4QJ.


Grindley Brook is a small village in Shropshire, which lies on the A41 trunk road approximately 1.5 miles northwest of the market town of Whitchurch. The county town of Shrewsbury is approximately 23 miles to the south, and Wrexham and Chester are 15 miles and 19 miles to the northwest respectively.

Grindley Brook village enjoys a picturesque setting on the Llangollen Canal (part of the Shropshire Union Canal). It is the location of the famous Staircase Locks, making it a popular destination for visitors. The village benefits from a couple of local shops, The Horse & Jockey public house, a garage and a caravan site. A larger range of amenities are easily available in nearby Whitchurch.

Grindley Brook is the starting point for four long distance trails (Maelor Way, Shropshire Way, South Cheshire Way and Sandstone Trail), and there are several other walks running through the village, including Marches Way.

The subject land lies just to the southeast of the village centre and fronts onto the A41. It immediately adjoins the canal locks at Grindley Brook Wharf, as well as the nearby Lockside Cafe.


The property comprises a plot of development land extending to approximately 0.48 acres incorporating a number of derelict commercial buildings, which originally formed Grindley Brook Mill. The existing buildings will need to be demolished as part of any planning application/permission.

The land is regular in shape and slightly elevated to rear. It is currently partly grassed and partly concreted, although slightly overgrown with vegetation. It is bounded by mature hedgerows to the side and rear and fenced to the front with a gated access directly off the A41.

The site lends itself well to a small residential development scheme, subject to planning permission.

It should be noted that there is a right of way through the land, details of which are available upon request from the selling agent.
