Situated close to Selby and York, close to the village of North Duffield, Blackwood Hall Business Park is set within the original grounds of Blackwood Hall.
This original Mansion House built in 1858 forming part of a large country estate which boundaried the river Derwent at Bubwith and remained a grand land holding estate until the high death duties that were historically imposed on the gentry forced the sale of the land reducing the size of the estate.
Blackwood Hall was eventually separated from the agricultural aspect of the estate and the land sold by private treaty leaving the Hall as a historic country residence set within twenty six acres of mature landscaped grounds.
The hall was left and deteriorated to a merely a shell and remained unoccupied until it was sold by auction in 1967.
Diversification away from the main arable activity of the estate led the Blackwood Hall Estate to change its purpose to that of a livestock holding and offices.
In 1997 Blackwood Hall estate remained a country residence and planning permission was granted for the former agricultural units to that of its current use as business units.
This thriving business park set in a picturesque rural setting is ideal for all sizes of business organisations.
Occasionally opportunities arise to occupy units – with offices to let, ideal for the Selby and the York area and warehouses to let, again ideally situated for Selby and York. The park likes to keep abreast of technological developments and now has 100mb fibre broadband available to all tenants. See our Available Lets page for particulars.
