The site is split across two distinct areas, separated by Barnfield Road itself, which terminates in a turning circle adjacent to the adjoining site to the south. The site lies off Sunnyhills Road and Barnfield Road and backs onto Barnfield Industrial Estate. The site is entirely brownfield land, the bulk of which was formerly owned and operated by Hughes Concrete Ltd. Both parts of the site are no longer in operational use. The larger part of the site is located to the west of Barnfield Road. There are a number of buildings which remain on site from the former concrete works, including buildings associated with former concrete processing/storage and utility buildings. The remainder of this portion of the site comprises of hard standing, which was mainly utilised for the storage of concrete pipes. To the south of the site there is a stunning outlook across the river Churnet and the Caldon Canal, into Ladderedge Country Park which extends to 30 hectares (70 acres).
