Clearbell UK Strategic Trust (CST), a fund advised by Clearbell Capital, has agreed a lease with Royal Mail on a 71,612 sq ft warehouse on the Manton Wood Business Park in North Nottinghamshire. The letting was facilitated by property consultants Commercial Property Partners (CPP).

Royal Mail has agreed a five-year lease at Manton Wood, which has recently undergone a programme of refurbishment and improvement works.

Other occupiers in the vicinity include DHL, B&Q and Wilko’s national distribution centres, as well as national food manufacturing operators Cargill, Greencore and Samworth Brothers.

The deal will bring employment to the area as Royal Mail prepares for the organisation’s peak period in the build up to Christmas. The unit will continue to support the companies Sheffield Mail Centre all year round, which serves customers across South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Adam James, Asset Management Director at Clearbell Capital, said:

“The demand for logistics space in well-located central areas continues to soar. We are experiencing strong levels of interest in assets such as Manton Wood as companies like Royal Mail aim to shore up their distribution networks in the run up to Christmas.”
