Rarely Available – Freehold Shop

We now have on the market freehold a good sized lockup shop in Uckfield High Street.


The shop is well decorated totalling some 680 sq ft and is in a good location being only yards way from the Church Street junction and opposite Barclays Bank. It is ready for immediate occupation so you could be in there in time for Christmas trading.

The flat above, included in the freehold, has been sold on a long leasehold interest. The freehold of the entire property is available for £125,000 being competitively priced for a quick sale. We hold keys so why not ring now for an early viewing.

Small Unit Re-available

Unit 2 Knights Business Centre at Palehouse Common is available once again having had a temporary tenant using it for storage for 6 months.


It provides 1,332 sq ft of useful accommodation ideal for storage or manufacturing with a small mezzanine platform making 1,572 sq ft in total.


The unit is being offered on a new 5 year lease at a rent of £9,000 pa which could be a great deal for a new business.

Uckfield Business Expo

Lawson Commercial yesterday attended the Uckfield Expo organised by Uckfield FM, the local community radio, and the Uckfield Civic Centre. There were some 40 exhibitors and a steady stream of visitors.


There was lots of business to business networking. Our Lego model shop, constructed over several hours by Julia despite not being an 8 – 12 year old, proved a hit as did our free pens with a useful light on the top.


Over 40 people entered our business card in a bucket champagne prize draw which was won by Tom Crellin of Skill IS. On our stand we were promoting the Ashdown Business Park at Maresfield where serviced plots of land with planning consent for office and industrial units are available together with the new industrial units to be built at the Swallow Business Centre on the A22 at Lower Dicker near Hailsham. A number of parties expressed interest and took away details.


All in all a good busy day.

Industrial Unit With B2 Consent

We have just been asked to market two interconnecting units known as the Lancelot Units at Squires Farm Industrial Estate.


They are currently occupied by an engineering company who are moving to new premises. Together they comprise just over 3,000 sq ft on the ground floor with a mixture of mezzanine offices and storage giving a total of some 3,891 sq ft. There is a useful small compound in front with parking for 12 – 15 vehicles. It could suit someone in the motor trade business and is available either to rent at £16,500 pa or can be bought freehold for which offers are sought in the region of £250,00

Delightful Office

Supporting the Building Heritage of Sussex

Lawson Commercial have always been strong supporters of Sussex Heritage Trust whose aim is to preserve, improve and encourage the appreciation of the architectural and natural heritage of Sussex. Partners Chris and Julia Lawson and their guests attended the 5th Biennial Dinner at the Ashdown Park Hotel. This black tie fund raising event took place in the former chapel, an impressive room with its stained glass windows and vaulted ceiling.


The guest speaker was Victoria Wallace, the first woman Director General of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission who is responsible for the running of the CWGC and its multi-national workforce of 1,300 staff. Victoria is well versed in heritage matters having spent ten years as Chief Executive at Leeds Castle Foundation and Enterprises and gave a very interesting talk on her career which has also included various posts within the Foreign and Commonwealth Diplomatic Service.

Lower Rents For Quick Lettings

The developers at the Enlightened Business Park at Palehouse Common, which includes 4 brand new industrial units, have reduced the asking rents to encourage early lettings.

Units 1 and 2 are substantially finished each offering 5,400 sq ft of accommodation with 2 loading doors, plenty of car parking, good lorry access and first class insulation. The units also benefit from solar panels on the roof which means electricity costs should be very competitive. The rents are now only £5 per sq ft pa which makes these extremely good value for brand new units at only £27,000 pa. Well worth considering so give us a call now to arrange to view.

Lawson Commercial have successfully let another unit on the Ghyll Road Industrial Estate at Heathfield. Unit 3 was the last small unit we had instructions on in this development and comprises some 1,145 sq ft on the ground floor with a useful storage mezzanine. A new carpentry business has taken the premises as a workshop. We wish them every succes.


Great Day Out At Charity Car Rally

Last Sunday partners Chris & Julia Lawson took part in the Uckfield Lions Charity Classic Car Rally which is an annual event to raise money for local charities. The weather was fantastic with lots of sunshine making a very enjoyable day. The participants all met at the Halfway House pub on the A26 at Rose Hill for coffee. There was a wide variety of classic cars over a large age spectrum and some not so classic who just like taking part.

Having been given our maps over100 cars set out on a 60 mile route taking us up Uckfield High Street, through High Hurstwood, into Rotherfield, then across Sussex roads we never knew existed with fantastic views – but narrow – towards Wadhurst and Etchingham with a coffee stop at St John Nursery, a delightful rural spot with very good cake. It was then back through Bodle Street Green, Burwash and Horam through to Chiddingly and East Hoathly. We finally arrived back at the Halfway House for a first class hog roast with homemade crumble to follow.

A great way to spend a Sunday and hopefully a good sum was raised for the two charities this year, the Citizens Advice Bureau and Dementia Care.
