Driving past an otherwise “normal” looking warehouse in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and you wouldn’t think it has its own high security basement, complete with secure weapons testing range.
The 13,600ft warehouse close to the centre of Shrewsbury at the Battlefield Industrial Estate has recently become available for leasehold and includes offices as well as the high security basement storage and firing range.
“It’s a unique commercial property in Shropshire and possibly in the West Midlands with a range of uses due to the secure nature of it,” said Martin Moore of property agents Morris, Marshall and Poole.
“It was previously owned by an ammunitions company that needed a secure area for storing munitions and another area for testing them.
“But the high security nature of the building opens up the possibilities for a range of commercial uses and the weapons testing range could be developed or converted as part of the secure area.”
Businesses wanting security for storing valuable or high net worth goods are among those targeted, although the site in March Way, Battlefield Industrial Estate, could be used for other purposes where security and access is essential.
Morris, Marshall and Poole, one of the main estate and property agents for Shropshire and Mid Wales, is marketing the site.
The property is available for leasehold at £35,500 per year and comes and a large parking area, loading apron, a mezzanine level and gas central heating with the offices.
