Rob said:

“There was keen interest in the Glassworks, which is presently a commercial site, with the seller happy to accept an offer close to the guide price.

“As previously mentioned, the property has planning consent for demolition and the construction of an individual, contemporary style house with three bedrooms.

“However, we are not privy to any plans the new owner may or not have.”

Meanwhile, 4-and-a-half acres of freehold grazing land adjacent to Hill Farm, Hill Top, Newchurch, guided at £70,000-80,000, also sold prior to the auction. The same can be said for half an acre of freehold land fronting Skinners Lane, Newchurch, which had a £50,000-plus estimate.
