Prime Warehousing space up for grabs at Onward Holdings’ popular West Yorkshire site.

7 December, 16

Onward Holdings Ltd is offering a much-needed increase in good quality warehousing capacity in Yorkshire after a unit became available at the popular Langthwaite Business Park on the edge of South Kirkby, close to the major motorway networks.

The company is urging businesses keen to establish a logistics or storage facility in the north of England to arrange a viewing of Unit 4 at the West Yorkshire industrial estate, which can be leased on flexible terms in various-sized areas from 5,000sqft up to 48,000sqft. There is also office space of 3,590sqft available, which can be split into up to five room suites and an area of 13,450sqft which is divided into nine working rooms.

Specialising in operating highly competitively priced industrial warehousing and retail parks in the north of England, family-run Onward Holdings is committed to boosting the logistics and industrial property market in the region by providing the opportunity to lease facilities, such as the last available unit at Langthwaite which is already generating considerable interest.

One of the reasons for Langthwaite’s success – it plays host to a wide range of companies, including Production Park, Life Structures, The Ice Co, Dempsey Dyer and Forest Freight Logistics – is the site’s proximity to the nation’s transport infrastructure.

Located just a short distance to the M62 and A1M motorways, Langthwaite is also within easy reach of the rail network, Doncaster Airport and the great container ports of the north, including the state-of-the-art docks at Immingham, the UK’s largest.

The superb facility is 5.5m eaves, boasting three raised loading doors and two surface loading doors, while a yard to either side of the building will allow the warehouse to be split into separate areas or give greater operational flexibility to the whole unit.

There has been significant investment in security measures at the business park meaning the site is suitable for both ordinary and high risk products. In keeping with Onward Holdings’ zero crime tolerance strategy, Unit 4 has fully palisade fencing and security gates.

Government initiatives are expected to drive significant future growth in the Yorkshire and Humber region, meaning demand for suitable sites for warehousing and logistics is expected to outstrip current supply in a key location for many businesses seeking to move or expand their supply chain in the north of England.

Site promoter, Andrew Miller, said: “There is an acute shortage of suitable industrial space in the north of England which is hindering the logistics property market. The current limited availability on the Langthwaite site reflects the quality of the development. This is an ideal opportunity for businesses to secure valuable warehousing space in a prime location on flexible terms.”

Onward Holdings also owns purpose-built sites in Featherstone, Castleford, Ackworth and Scunthorpe offering a range of logistics options to suit most budgets, together with additional value-added warehouse services. The different facilities that Onward Holdings offers can alleviate the shortage of individual units and help companies gain a vital foothold in the northern supply chain.

Letting of the site is being undertaken by Andrew Miller Chartered Surveyors of Sheffield on behalf of Onward Holdings.


Onward Holdings has been involved in warehousing and industrial estates owned and run by the company since 1930. Today, this family-run business is primarily involved in development and construction, including the provision of multi-sized warehouse facilities in the M62/M1/A1 corridor of West Yorkshire, and residential and mixed-use developments.

In addition to Willowbridge Lane and Langthwaite Business Park, the business has developed a former coal mine near Barnsley into a gleaming new retail park. ONYX Retail Park, comprising 17,500 square feet of retail space, is based in Wath-Upon-Dearne and is located at the former Manvers main colliery, an area of major regeneration.
