Why buy land for sale in Sheffield?

A unique opportunity to purchase a valuable parcel of land on the eastern edge of Sheffield, close to the Meadowhall shopping centre.

Measuring 0.75 acres, the land lies off the A631, Bawtry Road and forms part of a disued private sports ground. With an abundance of public recreational facilities now available nearby – including the neighbouring Sheffield Hallam University Sports Park – the site could have the potential for development.
