Railway Workshop, High Peak, Derbyshire, SK23 7HB
The site is located within the Peak District National Park, south of the village of Fernilee and is accessed via a private road and track leading from Long Hill (A5004) a few metres south of the Fernilee Village Hall. The A5004 links Buxton 5 miles to the south west with Whalley Bridge, 2 miles to the north.
The site consists of a vacant stone building which is believed to be a former railway workshop with an additional building previously used as an air raid shelter, contained thereon. The buildings may represent potential for residential development subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
Interested parties should consult directly with the Local Planning Authority: Derbyshire County Council, County Hall, Matlock, DE4 3AG . Telephone: 01629 533190.
1. The building previously benefited from an electricity supply and has a low level pylon adjacent which may assist in sourcing a supply if needed. In addition, the property is adjacent to a pressured water main to which an application can be made for a water supply. The site is not located within the vicinity of mains sewerage and therefore a small package treatment plant will be required to be installed.
2. Business use will not be permitted.
3. The site is located on water catchment land and will therefore be subject to usage restrictions. These restrictions will however allow for conversion for residential or holiday letting purposes.
4. Viewings are strictly by appointment only, and interested parties should not inspect the buildings independently.
Please ensure when you are visiting the above site, you do not encroach on neighbouring land or properties and respect adjacent land owners by not trespassing or disturbing them.
