A MARQUEe and equipment hire firm has acquired an industrial/warehouse unit on a popular business park on the fringe of the New Forest.

Castle Marquees has bought Unit 5 at Fordingbridge Business Park in a deal brokered by agents Myddelton & Major and Goadsby.

Asking leasehold price for the 2,712 sq ft (251.93 sq m) unit was £220,000 on a 999-year lease.

Myddelton & Major Partner Dean Speer said: “We acted jointly with Goadsby of Bournemouth, who made the introduction, on this sale.

“Burley-headquartered Castle Marquees were seeking a good sized unit in a strategic position and we were happy to be able to oblige."

The property is a mid-terrace industrial/warehouse unit of steel portal frame construction with cavity brick and blocks elevations and profile steel cladding to the walls and roof.
