Morelands Trading Estate, Gloucester

Gloucester

Morelands Trading Estate is a well-known historical landmark in Gloucester, having originally been the Old England match factory. The site has been fully restored and converted into business offices, workshops, industrial units and studios. It also offers a large meeting room for hire.

Covering 250,500 square feet (23,225 square metres) in total, Morelands Trading Estate contains over 70 business units. These range in size from 320 - 34,000 square feet (30 - 3,158 square metres), so we can cater for both large and small businesses. Our simple one-page licence gives you flexibility for your business and makes signing up quick and easy.

Close to the Gloucester Quays Outlet centre and the Gloucester Docks, our business park benefits from an excellent public transport and road network. We have 110 free car parking spaces, available on a first come, first served basis and there is good access to all the business units for loading / unloading. We also offer night time security patrols and monitored CCTV. There is no reception at this business centre, but we do provide a postal service.

The site is also home to a community art project for disadvantaged children, which has helped the estate to become a community hub for the local area.

Offices

Our offices are rented on an unfurnished basis and range from 50 – 1,370 square feet (4.6 – 127.3 square metres). Most have windows, but we do also have some internal units. Other residents on site offer telecoms and IT set-up, but you are free to choose your own providers and tailor your services to your needs.

Studios

Our eight studios are based in a separate building called Bizspace House, which has its own entry system and service lift. Split over two floors, they range from 1,000 – 2,500 square feet (92.9 -232.3 square metres) and have high ceilings and large windows, letting in plenty of light. They are therefore ideal for photographers and artists or can be used as gyms or fitness studios.

Industrial units

We have a small number of industrial units, with roller shutter doors to provide easy access. One of these is a standalone 15,000 square foot (1,393 square metre) unit that can be used as a warehouse or for other light industrial purposes.

Mailboxes

If you do not want an actual office or unit, but need a business address, we provide a mailbox service. Starting from £30 plus VAT, this is an economical option that keeps your business mail secure and separate from your personal post. You can then collect it when convenient for you, or we can forward it on to another address for you.  

Meeting room

Our spacious meeting room can hold up to 30 people in a boardroom, theatre or U shape layout and is charged at £8.00 per hour and £50.00 per day (excluding VAT) and this is discounted for internal customers.

Testimonials

What our tenants say about this space.

I visited three or four business parks and Jackie was the most helpful and explained everything really well, which was one of the deciding factors for picking the unit.
Paul Knight
Jackie showed me around the site and I came back to sign up the very next day because it was so good. It really does tick every box for me.
