New Trade Park in Alnwick Completes

15th September 2023

Construction of a 36,000 sq. ft development is now complete on Alnwick Trade Park comprising six new, purpose-built premises.
Developed by Northumberland Estates to support the needs of industrial and trade businesses in the region, the new park will deliver many benefits for Alnwick and the surrounding area, including job creation and economic growth.
Established Alnwick-based business, Hardy’s of Alnwick has relocated to the park, allowing the company to stay in the town it was founded and maintain its long-standing customer base.
John Henderson, Commercial Director of Pure Fishing (UK) and Hardy’s Manufacturing Director said: “Northumberland Estates have created a new, state-of-the-art facility in Alnwick for Hardy’s to manufacture the finest fishing reels in the world.
“Alnwick is a large part of the company’s heritage, having been based in the town since it was founded in 1872, and this investment means we can retain our local specialist workforce and presence here for many more years to come.”
Interest in the development reflects the desires of businesses to be in Alnwick and this extra supply of space allows some of that demand to be met.
Michael O Driscoll, Commercial Property Investment Director, Northumberland Estates said: “This is the latest phase of planned development and investment in Alnwick and we believe that as well as attracting new businesses, it will also help boost the surrounding area and further establish the town as a thriving trade and retail destination.”
Alnwick Trade Park is located at the new entrance to Lionheart Enterprise Park South, at the junction with Shilbottle Road. The new units are less than 0.5 miles from the A1 and 1.5 miles from Alnwick Town Centre. Nearby occupiers include Howdens, Wolseley and MKM.
Nick Atkinson, Director, HTA Real Estate said: “We have seen really strong interest from businesses in the trade counter and industrial sectors for this new development.”
