    Poulton Quarry
    Bradford on Avon
    BA15 1LT
    Auction Guide Price £15,000 to £25,000*
     
    Description
    Poulton  Quarry,  also  known  as  St  Katherine's
    Quarry,  presents  possibly  one  of  the  most
    unusual  properties  that  we  have  had  the
    pleasure of offering for sale for some time and
    we are delighted to be able to offer a piece of
    real local history.
     
    Poulton Quarry was used as a limestone quarry
    during the 1800s, and possibly before.      Since
    the  removal  of  stone  became  unviable  the
    quarry  fulfilled  other  roles  including  acting  as
    an  air  raid  shelter  for  the  local  school  during
    WWII  and  more  recently  used  for  producing
    mushrooms.   
     
    The site consists of  a  network of  underground
    rooms  and  pillars  which  vary  in  height  and
    width  and  there  have  been  some  supporting
    brick  columns  with  steel  RSJ  beams  installed
    along the quarry.  Please note that apart from
    the entrance area there is no over ground land
    included in the sale.
     
    Access
    Access to the quarry is via a right of way over
    the  private  car park  of  Kennet Gardens, with
    and  without  vehicles,  for  the  purposes  of
    unloading  and  then  a  pedestrian  access
    leading  from  the  parking  area  to  the  quarry
    entrance.    Full  details  of  the  access  will  be
    contained in the auction pack.
    Viewings
    Due to the nature of the site and to ensure the
    safety  of  those  viewing  and  Cooper  and
    Tanner  colleagues  there  are  strict  instructions
    with regard to arranging viewings and we ask
    that  these  are  followed.    No  children  will  be
    allowed on site, without exception.  Viewers will
    be  allotted  a  time  slot  for  their  viewing  and
    those  who  miss  their  time  cannot  be
    guaranteed  a  viewing.  Viewings  will  be
    accompanied  onto  and  off  the  site  and  a
    member of staff will remain with you at all times.
    Hard  hats  and  hi  viz  jackets  will  be  provided
    and  we  ask  that  suitable  foot  wear  is  worn. 
    Please note that there is limited parking in the
    area  and  so  we ask  that you  park  in  the  car
    park adjacent to the canal (nearest postcode
    BA15 1BX) and walk to the site
     
    Services: There are no services currently
    connected and buyers must rely on their own
    enquiries.
    Completion
    Completion  has  been  set  for  Thursday  10
    th
     
    October or earlier by arrangement.

Those particulars are as interesting for what they do not say as for what they do!
