This is a broadly rectangular parcel of land historically utilised for storage of aggregates. Part of the site benefits from concrete hardstanding, with the majority of the site having an aggregate base. There is a palisade fence and bund which secures the site.

The West Anglia Main Line passes along the north-western boundary of the site with a spur (offering direct access onto the Main Line) running into an area to the north of the site, owned by the vendor.

The land coloured blue is also in the freehold ownership of the vendor whom is open to a purchaser being granted a lease of this area which would benefit from direct access onto the West Anglian Mainline.
