Water works in Dales village with views of Pen-ye-Ghent to be sold by auction today

The Westmorland Gazette: Pen-y-Ghent Pen-y-Ghent

THE former water treatment works in a Dales village is to be auctioned off today (Thursday).

The stone-built building, on Mewith Lane, High Bentham, will be sold in Leeds with a guide price of at least £150,000, on the instructions of Keyland Developments.

In 2010, planning permission was granted for conversion of the building into a ‘live and work’ unit.


A design statement indicates that the inside of the building is large enough for another floor to be inserted, so that accommodation can be installed over two storeys ‘without significant structural alterations’.

The former water treatment works covers around 0.14 acres and has open moorland views towards the Yorkshire peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is around four miles away.

The auction will be held by property firm, Eddisons, at The Nicky Chapman Suite, Leeds United Football Club, Elland Road, Leeds.
