Land adjacent to Frizington Veteran's Club, Frizington, Cumbria CA26 3PU
The subject land is located on Lindow Street in Frizington, Cumbria and close to the west Cumbrian town of Whitehaven.
Frizington is a village in Cumbria, North West England that was unified from a collection of farms and houses as a result of the mining of both coal and iron ore in the area. The village is known for its church, which was built in 1867-1868 and is historically part of the civil parish of Arlecdon and Frizington. The parish has a population of 3,678 (2011 Census) and forms part of the Borough of Copeland.
Frizington lies adjacent and just outside the western boundary of the Lake District National Park and is accessed via the B5295 which links to the A595, approximately 4 miles away, providing access to Whitehaven circa 5 miles to the east, north to Workington, Cockermouth and the A66 all being approximately 11 miles away, and south to Egremont and Sellafield which is around 10 miles away.
Whitehaven provides a range of local retail and supermarket facilities and is a local administration centre serving a wide rural area including the West part of the Lake District. The town has a well-developed Harbour and Marina which is now predominantly occupied by Leisure Craft. The town has benefited from substantial inward investment in recent years to improve the Harbour and Marina facilities and the waterfront in general. The area has benefited from significantly inward investment from Britain’s Energy Coast including a new 100,000 sq ft office building in Whitehaven town centre for approximately 1,000 staff from the nearby Sellafield Nuclear Power Station.
The subject site is situated in the centre of Frizington with residential properties located directly to the north, east and west. Access is taken from Main Street along Yeathouse Road and connecting to Lindow Street.
