Land at Battlefield Farm, Battlefield, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY4 3EQ.


The site is located on the outskirts of the historic market town of Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire and lies on the River Severn approximately 9 miles from the Welsh border and 10 miles east of Telford New Town.

The land itself is situated on a corner plot at the junction of the A53 and A49, just off the Shrewsbury bypass and approximately 2 miles equidistant from the town centre and the A5 trunk road/M54 motorway. It is also in close proximity to Battlefield Enterprise Park and Shrewsbury Cattle Market.

The site enjoys a prominent position immediately adjoining the Battlefield Roundabout, bounded to the north by the A53 and to the west by the A49. It enjoys good road links, with easy access to the A5/M54 and greater West Midlands via the A49, and to Cheshire and the north via the A53, and will also benefit from improved road links when the Shrewsbury relief road is built.

The site is ideally located for an urbanised industrial development, with established commercial uses to the north and an existing employment allocation to the west.


The property is a substantial development site, which is being promoted as employment land for industrial use. The land is predominantly level and currently consists of vacant agricultural land in open countryside on the edge of the built up area.

It is envisaged that the site will be broken up to provide a number of smaller plots ranging from 1-80 acres for industrial use, dependent on individual requirements. Alternatively, the site can be taken as a whole by a single user.

The site will be accessed via a new roundabout junction from the A49 with linkages to the existing road, footpath and public transport networks. There will be structural landscaping and screening around the fringe of the site, including a landscaped drainage attenuation feature. These works will be carried out by the vendor.
