Askham Bryan water tower sold for £64,000
8:05am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A WATER tower next to the A64 in York has been sold at auction for £64,000 – more than double the highest amount it was expected to fetch.
The Yorkshire Water structure at Askham Bryan went under the hammer at Leeds United FC’s Elland Road ground at a sale handled by auctioneers Eddisons. Its guide price was between £20,000 and £25,000.
The same auction also saw the Pack Of Cards pub in Lindsey Avenue, Acomb, sold for £158,000, from a guide price of £95,000-plus.
The water tower, in Mill Lane, is currently let to Vodafone and TV York, which pay combined annual rent of almost £12,500 for the use of buildings at the site, and the firms must give six and three months’ notice respectively if they want to leave.
Other buildings surrounding the tower are not owned by Yorkshire Water or part of the site which was auctioned.
