Gascoigne Wood / January, 2022

The Harris Partnership working alongside land and property regeneration specialist Harworth Group have lodged plans for up to two million sqft of industrial and logistics at Gascoigne Wood.

Gascoigne Wood is a 185-acre former colliery site in Sherburn-in-Elmet, North Yorkshire. The site benefits from an existing rail connection through the Sherburn Rail Freight Terminal, and also lies in close proximity to the A1(M) and the M62. In 2021, Network Rail began using part of the site as a logistics hub to support the Transpennine Route Upgrade Project.

Chris Davidson, associate director for major projects at Harworth, added: “These exciting new plans present unique opportunities to bring additional employment space to the region. “The proposals at Gascoigne Wood seek to capitalise on the unique rail connectivity and the site has the ability to attract major inward investment and deliver supply to meet the projected demand arising from rail freight growth in the UK.”
