Chelford Farm Supplies have occupied this site for many years in a collection of buildings, former garage workshops and ramshackle warehousing, the equestrian supplies business occupies the former mill building on he roadside.

The new shop was designed as a split level building with the principle entrance from the car park half way between ground and first floors, this allowed the building frontage to fit into the street-scape, the engineering and repairs side of the business to be located in the lower ground floor and the retail sales on the upper ground floor linked with staircases and  a lift. Behind the shop a workshop a full 2 storey warehouse ensures a fully stocked business.

It was essential that the businesses continued to trade during the development works and careful planning by Capital Construction and the developers OM Projects ensured a smooth program and continuity of operation.

The vastly improved access, car and commercial vehicle parking have greatly improved the setting and efficiency of the site.
