The site is located in the town of Blyth, a coastal town and the largest town in the County of Northumberland. Blyth is circa 20 km (12.5 miles) to the north east of Newcastle upon Tyne. The property sits in the heart of a main industrial centre of Blyth along the southern bank of the tidal estuary of the River Blyth. The eastern fringe of this area, nearest to the commercial centre of the town, has been redeveloped in recent years with many retail operations including the Blyth Retail park.
The property comprises a former oil and petroleum distribution site. It is 0.43 acres (0.17 ha) in size and generally level and broadly rectangular in shape with good and dual access from Conniston Road. The site is mostly surfaced with good hardstanding and benefits from secure fencing to all boundaries. All of the equipment and installations associated with the former use will be removed from the site prior to sale. Once this has been completed, the site will present itself as a simple secure storage yard with little “on costs” to the eventual Purchaser.
There is no built space upon the site.
