Case Number 73 Wombwell Police Station Up For Sale

Friday, 01 October 2010

Its interesting features and unique history are making the former Wombwell police station stand out from the usual suspects on the property market.


Leading UK property consultant GVA Grimley is marketing the old police station which is available on a lease or purchase basis.


Dan Hodge, head of office agency at GVA Grimley's Leeds office, said: "This former police station is generating a lot of interest as it offers the opportunity to own a quirky piece of local history.


"The interesting features of this old building make it unique, and the location means it is ideal for offices, residential or a number of other uses, subject to planning."


Though it was converted into offices a few years ago, the building retains original features such as the former cells. The building includes a mixture of both open plan and private accommodation. There is also on site parking and gardens at the rear of the property.


Situated just three miles south east of Barnsley the property is located close to Wombwell High Street which offers good community links to local facilities.
