The site is located to the south of Bishops Waltham, south of the Old Station Roundabout and east of a dismantled railway line. The site has well defined boundaries extending to 3.697 ha (9.13 ac) with three distinct areas identified on the plan overleaf: Abbey Mill, Abbey Field; and Bishops Waltham South Pond. The Abbey Mill site was formerly used as a light industrial park and has been cleared of existing buildings; save for the mill building which is vacant with an approximate GIA of 656.20 sq m (7,063 sq ft) laid out over six levels. The adjacent Bishops Waltham Palace, to the east of the site, is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (Scheduled Monument No. 1016169) and includes the Abbey Field and Bishop’s Waltham South Pond (former fishpond to the palace).
