St Francis Group is delighted to announce that it has exchanged contracts to sell 6.5 acres at Leamore Lane to British Car Auctions.

The former Deeley’s Casting site was once a heavy engineering plant on the south side of Leamore Lane with the Wyrley and Essington Canal forming a distinct boundary to the East and South.

A legacy of the once busy steel and iron furnaces and brick works industries closeby, the site has been lying vacant for several years. British Car Auctions who occupy an adjacent plot intend to extend their existing facility and consolidate an already successful operation in the area.

Speaking about the news Gareth Williams, Development Director at St Francis Group said; “This site has offered planning challenges over recent years as we’ve tried to bring it back into beneficial use. Once we established it’s potential to assist British Car Auctions with their expansion plans, we were delighted to swiftly agree terms and exchange contracts on a subject to planning basis”.
