Harworth Group, the logistics developer, has acquired a Lancashire warehouse site as it re-builds its North West portfolio. The £4.5m purchase at Moorland Gate, Chorley, brings 125,000 sq ft of warehousing, and 2 acres of development land. The total site is just under 11 acres.
Moorland Gate is less than 3 miles from Junction 8 of the M61, and close to Harworth’s Logistics North development in Bolton. Moorland Gate acquisition is Harworth’s third major purchase of 2016 and is part of a plan to “replenish” the portfolio following the success of Logistics north.
Tenants at Moorland Gate include FDC (Holdings) Ltd and Stagecoach North West. Further Harworth site purchases are expected.
