Historical Craven College building up for sale

Sat, 09 Feb 2019 | COMMERCIAL PROPERTY



The landmark Craven College building in Skipton is up for sale. The college is looking to place a majority of its courses at its edge-of-town site, near the Auction Mart campus.

Craven College, Andrew Cropley, said: “Through focusing our activity at the Aireville Campus and Auction Mart Campus the college is able to provide all our students with access to the best facilities possible and the widest range of services to support them. It has been the ambition of the college over the last seven years to concentrate its activities at Aireville and Auction Mart campuses.”

The sale of the three-storey building is being handled by property consultancy, DE Commercial, with offers of £1,025,000 being invited.

The potential for the building is vast; with options for it to be renovated into a bar, restaurant, office, retail or be converted into homes.

DE Commercial managing director, Richard Heslop, said: “This is a unique development opportunity in the Skipton area, as this historic building is suitable for a variety of uses.

“The location is superb, right in the heart of Skipton, and the impressive façade gives the property real character. It is a statement building.

“The property backs on the Leeds-Liverpool canal and is close to Skipton Castle and Skipton Town Hall. Skipton also boasts excellent transport links.

“Internally, there are modern facilities for both fully operational hair and beauty salons and catering kitchens and a restaurant. These facilities are complemented by ancillary accommodation which includes classrooms, offices and storage, together with a social area for students.”

The college’s hair, beauty and catering courses will be moved to the Aireville Campus, and its subsidiary, Tyro Training recently moved from the centre of town to the main campus.
