Alfreton is a medium-sized former mining town situated in the administrative region of Amber Valley, lying adjacent to the A38 dual carriageway, approximately 13 miles to the North of Derby, and a similar distance North West of Nottingham. Since the decline of the mining industry in the latter part of the twentieth century, the town has developed a broader employment base through the development of large industrial estates adjacent to the A38. Road communications are good, with the A38 linking with junction 28 of the M1 approximately 2miles to the north.

More specifically, the subject property sits in a prominent position in Somercotes fronting the B600 (Somercotes Hill) and being directly opposite the Co-Operative Food Store on the Market Place. The property has significant visibility to the road with high numbers of passing traffic which would be of great interest to an occupier and the subject property is also situated directly opposite the Somercotes Market Place free car park.
