The site was home to the original Old Billingbear Brickworks, which produced the bricks used to build The Royal Albert Hall. Today, the site is used by the current owners and a small number of commercial tenants for open storage, storage containers, portacabin offices and light industrial units. There are also equine stables, manège and open paddock land and three mobile homes, all of which are controlled by the current owners.

The site currently produces a rental income of approximately £113,500 p.a. with additional income of up to £110,000 p.a. possible from the equine stables and manège. All occupants are on informal tenancies, but the Vendors undertake to give vacant possession upon completion of the sale if required as the majority of tenants are associated with the Vendors business operations.

The site offers prospective purchasers an immediate income-generating investment with the potential for future commercial or residential redevelopment, subject to planning.

The front brownfield part of the site measures approximately 5.94 acres, with the open paddock land to the rear measuring approximately 9.43 acres, offering a total site of approximately 15.37 acres.
