Does anyone know of any websites where derelict / abandoned buildings are listed for sale? It can be anything, a pub, a house, a watermill, a barn etc.

Mucho gracias.

Otherwise, if you are after property development opportunities I would list yourself with as many commercial estate agencies as possible and offer backhanders to get first dibs.

It's more of an opportunity to buy a building for the future, without planning permission. To develope say 10/20 years down the line. A la Grand Designs.

ETA: Thanks for the link.

Slighty off topic though always quite interesting to see if there is anything near you some real gems in there:

Where i go shooting in Gretton near corby, there is a derilict farmhouse that stands on ground owned by what was british steel, so guessing now corus.

Its huge, sat in isolated ground, and has been empty for at least 20 years.

Its just about my dream property, i would love to be able to get hold of it and renovate it to my spec

One of the PH surveyors will be on here in a bit to point out how difficult it is to do these well and bring them in even close to budget.
but otherwise I heartily agree.

The commute would be a bit far to Manchester!
