      We think it was to do with the new housing estate built behind it

    Does anyone know who owns this land now?

    It would be ideal to expand the army cadet facility and provide more facilities for Wath and local youngsters

      Not sure, but we believe that there is a conservation order protect the cellars. Could be wrong. Try contact RMB Council planning.
