The car park is accessed off Saunder Bank and forms one of the largest undeveloped plots within Burnley.

The surrounding area is primarily commercial with a mix of offices and industrial neighbouring properties along with all of Burnley town centre amenities including the bus station and train station, which are just a short walk from the subject premises.

Junction 10 of the M65 motorway is less than 2 miles from the property.


The property comprises a predominantly stone built 3-storey building which has been part refurbished by the current owners.

The building has had new double glazed windows installed across the entire property creating a well presented series of adjoining properties with attractive fronts, that would suit various uses.

Internally the ground floors of all of the premises are found to be in relatively good condition as the current owners have undertaken refurbishment works which include new laminate floors, painted and freshly plastered walls with strip fluorescent lighting.

The upper floors are in poorer condition with much of the work left unfinished and in need of completion before the building is suitable for occupation. Further details are available on request.
