A Wigton industrial estate has been acquired by a property investment company.

Northern Trust announced the acquisition of the 23,995sq ft Western Bank Industrial Estate this week.

On the western edge of Wigton, it has 13 units in four blocks, from 760sq ft to 5,860sq ft.

Tom Parkinson, director at Northern Trust, said: "This acquisition complements our existing portfolio across Cumbria, which now extends to over 425,000 sq ft across the region.

"This purchase forms part of an on-going strategy to acquire/develop multi-let commercial property assets and provide flexible solutions to SMEs and the wider business community, providing an opportunity to expand and relocate within our portfolio.”

Western Bank Industrial Estate will be managed by the Whittle Jones North West office.
