About this property

  • The main site extends to a gross area of 16.6 hectares (41.01 acres) situated between the Birmingham to Cardiff main railway line to the west and the River Wye to the east. The railway embankment features mature trees and undergrowth that provides a natural screen to the development site. The eastern side of the site is open to the river where there are panoramic views towards the river cliffs at the town end and open countryside to the south. To the south of the site and within the same ownership, a disused quarry provides a haven for wildlife and flora and it is anticipated this part of the site will eventually provide a public amenity. The developable area is generally level with a lower part at its northern end. Most the buildings on site have been demolished, stripped of components and de-roofed in readiness for development. Four disused and overgrown concrete slipways are a significant feature of the site and it is expected that one of these structures will be incorporated within a development scheme. Brunel House, a substantial five-storey three-level Grade II listed former Mill building occupies a prominent position at the site entrance. Following a fire in 2001, the property was completely rebuilt within the stone facade walls and is currently laid out as office accommodation.
