*VIDEO TOUR AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST* The property comprises a three-storey red sandstone corn mill, that dates from the 18th century. The mill closed in 1940 and the property was restored as a visitor centre opening in 1991. Now vacant, the property could be suitable for a variety of uses and/or redevelopment subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

The accommodation extends to approximately 334.62 sq. m (3,602 sq. ft) and is currently configured as predominantly open plan ground and first floors, with the second floor being subdivided into three office areas of varying sizes, a full bathroom and a kitchen. A staircase links each level and there is a single storey addition to the ground floor that houses the former water wheel. An additional WC is located on the ground floor.

The majority of the site is level, with part sloping up to the entrance on Kingsmill Road. This provides shared access to the adjacent car park, which is outside of the site boundary. The site area is approximately 0.23 hectares (0.58 acres).


Situated in a picturesque location adjacent to the River Clywedog on the edge of a residential area that lies approximately 1 mile to the south of the town centre.

Additional Information

1. The Council’s planning department have stated:

Existing Permitted Use - Ground and First Floor: Class D1: Non-residential institution & Second Floor: Residential (Class C3)

Planning Policy - The site lies outside of the settlement limit for Wrexham, as defined in the current Unitary Development Plan (UDP). It also lies within a Green Barrier. UDP policies GDP1, EC1, EC6, EC12, H3, H5, E5, S7, CLF9 and T8 would be applicable.
The site does lie within a zone C2 flood plain and this is likely to preclude the re-use of the building for residential or other highly vulnerable uses (as defined in Technical Advice Note 15: Development and Flood Risk).

Potential Alternative Uses - The ground and first floor could be used for any other use falling with Class D1 without the need for planning permission. Flood risk considerations mean residential use or visitor accommodation use of the ground and first floor would be unlikely to be supported. Subject to complying with the relevant UDP policies, the building could potentially be used for office or light industrial purposes or for a mix of such uses in addition to the existing permitted use of the premises.

Interested parties should consult direct with the Local Planning Office, Wrexham County Borough Council https://www.wrexham.gov.uk/service/contact-our-planning-department, planning@wrexham.gov.uk & 01978 298994.

* Generally speaking Guide Prices are provided as an indication of each seller's minimum expectation, i.e. 'The Reserve'. They are not necessarily figures which a property will sell for and may change at any time prior to the auction. Virtually every property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property during the auction) which we expect will be set within the Guide Range or no more than 10% above a single figure Guide.
