The subject property is centrally located on the Diplocks Way Industrial Estate to the western side of Hailsham.  The Estate is the primary industrial/warehouse/commercial area within the town and lies to the south west of the Hailsham retail town centre.  Diplocks Way runs north west to the A22 Hailsham bypass (1km) and south east to the A295.

Hailsham is a market town located within East Sussex.  It lies east of the A22 which runs south to Polegate and the A27 (5kms distant) with the largest town in the area, Eastbourne, located a further 11.5kms to the south.  The A22 also runs north west to East Grinstead.

On street parking is available on Diplocks Way; bus routes also serve the Estate.  Rail connections are available at Polegate with services towards Eastbourne/Hastings to the south/east, Lewes/Brighton to the west and north towards London (Victoria).


The property comprises a purpose built mid terraced industrial/warehouse unit with front yard/car park. The ground floor is open plan with a minimum eaves height of 6.23m and a full height roller shutter.  A structural front first floor section provides staff room/canteen accommodation and a more recent mezzanine addition provides storage space and an office. Cloakrooms are fitted to both ground and first floors. The same tenant occupies Unit 3 and is therefore interconnected; should they vacate either, it is the tenants responsibility to self-contain.
