This development site is situated on Millers Green on the edge of the historic town of Wirksworth. The town offers a comprehensive range of amenities including an excellent range of independent shops, cafes and bars along with those essentials such as the Doctors surgery, leisure centre and schools both Primary and Secondary.

There is a thriving town community with many events hosted in the town. The land backs onto the local Cricket and Bowling grounds with further sports clubs also embraced in the town.

The town is located on the edge of the Peak District National Park and Carsington Water and also has its own steam railway which makes Wirksworth a popular town visited and stayed in by many tourists to the area.

Good links are afforded to other picturesque local towns with Matlock (6 miles), Ashbourne (10miles) and Bakewell (13miles) close by. There are also good links to the major M1 motorway which is just 15 miles from Wirksworth.

Brief Description

Building plots of this size in such a convenient location rarely come to the market. The site extends to just under 1.5 acres and gently ascends from the roadside and backs onto the Cricket ground to the rear with views enjoyed across the rolling hills beyond.

Outline planning consent has been granted for the erecting of 12 dwellings of varying design including executive detached family homes, bungalows and some semi detached properties. Further information on the planning consent and associated reports conducted can be found on the Derbyshire Dales planning section on the website under application reference 19/00455/OUT.

The land is currently part hardstanding and part majority pasture with mature hedges.


From Wirksworth town centre - proceed out of the town on the B5023 Derby Road, proceed straight on at the mini island and then after about 600 metres take the right hand fork onto Millers Green. The building plot will then be found on the right hand side next door to the Bowling club clearly identified by the Bagshaws For Sale board.
