With a freehold guide price of £50,000 to £55,000, the single lot off Hillsley Road is among 137 lots being sold by land and property auctioneers Clive Emson.

Rob Marchant, auctioneer, said: ‘We always have strong bidding interest in lock-up garages – they get snapped up by investors looking for modest income streams.

‘All of the nine garages, in a gated area, are let on short-term licences, generating £7,020 per annum.’
