Readers have their say after offices used by BBC Radio Cumbria are up for sale on what it should be replaced with.

The broadcaster’s base in Hartington Street, Barrow, is on the market for £90,000.

The BBC announced plans to close a number of its local offices across the county last year amid ‘significant financial pressures’.

A listing says tenant Radio Cumbria is moving out ‘in September’.

Ross Estate Agencies said: “The property would suit a variety of buyers as it is in good order throughout and covers the ground floor only.”

Shelley Jane Killip said: “Youth club for kids – pool table, games machine, arcade machines. Keep the kids out of trouble.”

Paul Barker said: “Costa.”

Mark Simpson said: “Primark, I just thought we could do with one.”

Steven Forster Driver said: “Community groups”

Reminiscin,g Anthony Perkins said: “I remember when it started up as BBC Radio Furness originally broadcasting to the Furness area on MW 837kHz / FM 96.1MHz.

“It would carry BBC Radio Cumbria much of the time but would opt out for a split breakfast show before opting back into BBC Radio Cumbria."

Also taking a trip back in time, Jill Sayles said: “Kim Chapman, did we do work experience here, when it was Radio Furness? I think they interviewed us live and we were too scared to speak!”
