The property lies on the western edge of Congleton, in the parish of Somerford, a high quality residential neighbourhood. The A54 is close by to the south, linking Holmes Chapel to the west with Congleton town centre to the east. The site sits adjacent to countryside to the west which is home to several desirable Cheshire villages, whilst the amenities of Congleton town centre are conveniently close by. The site comprises approximately 26.4 acres of broadly flat, grassed over land in several parcels, presently accessed from Black Firs Lane which runs adjacent in a northerly direction from the A54 Holmes Chapel Road and from Back Lane at the north. The proposed Congleton Link Road is anticipated to run to the north, with farmland lying beyond and to the eastern boundary along with sports playing fields. The southern end of the site lies contiguous to a proposed nine acre Community Nature Park, to be provided by the local Parish Council. To the west, a new housing development by David Wilson Homes is expected to commence during 2017. The West Heath retail shopping park lies approximately half a mile away along Holmes Chapel road towards Congleton town centre, providing excellent convenience shopping facilities. Occupiers include Martins Newsagents, local pharmacy, Aldi supermarket and Home Bargains.
