The property comprises two parcels of development land bisected by Brewery Lane, with the former Mitchell’s of Lancaster Brewery building forming a local landmark. The two sites extend to 1.39 acres (“West of Brewery Lane”) and 1.32 acres (“East of Brewery Lane”).

More specifically, West of Brewery Lane comprises a range of existing buildings including warehouses, workshops, former office spaces and cottages. These range in age and current condition, with several parts now largely overgrown alongside natural deterioration of the buildings.

East of Brewery Lane is the former brewery building itself and associated warehouses and workshops. The brewery building (known as the Malthouse) is Grade II Listed, however has had its internal floors removed historically. Assuming these were re-instated, the building could extend to some 17,600 sq ft, however the usual planning and listed building consents would need to be secured. Located immediately north of the Brewery Building is a warehouse that has been re-purposed to provide a leisure venue, known as Kanteena.

The site benefits from direct access to St Leonard’s Gate through 137 St Leonard’s Gate and an existing ginnel, notwithstanding the larger yard attached to one of the warehouse properties. Otherwise, the site is accessible by main roads on all sides, namely Lodge Street to the north, Edward Street to the east, Moor Lane to the south and St Leonard’s Gate to the west.
