Former Barrow school sold at auction
Last updated at 14:49, Thursday, 12 June 2014
The ex Thorncliffe School site in Barrow – which is split across two sides of Thorncliffe Road – was sold by Pugh and Co at Manchester City Football Club’s Etihad Stadium this afternoon.
The sale, on behalf of Cumbria County Council, was split into two development lots. The north site, which is the tower block side sold for £405,000. It had a guide price of £350,000-plus and is set over 1.5 acres.
The south side sold for £470,000, when the guide price was £450,000-plus for the 2.35-acre plot.
It is understood that both sites were sold to the same bidder.
The sites in Hawcoat have been described as having “fantastic development opportunity” in a desirable location for housing.

Have your say
what makes you laugh is the study into population fall just recently and people worrying. 120 house wanting to be thrown up on Ratings Village, 50 houses by Chetwynde school, St James Gardens, Former Parkview, Former Thorncliffe site potentially putting around 300-500 houses into the system. Houses still being built at holbeck, house's on Walney, once the Marina (more like another housing estate) gets built that will be over 1,000 houses added to the local area. Also once the council get there fingers out of there proverbial behinds there will be houses on Sutherland street/Marsh street (what a failed project thats been)
Is there going to be a last show around like Park view had? Would love to see it all before it gets knocked down :(.
