History of Gadbrook Park

Gadbrook Park was developed in 1984 by a Partnership Agreement between Vale Royal Borough Council and Osborne House. This partnership produced a unique office development outside of the traditional town centre set up that many towns and cities had not seen before.

Chairman of Osborne House, John Fifield, saw the potential of this site to build a business park as ideal for businesses wishing to relocate to an environment where office space and landscaped gardens replace the hustle and bustle of city centre life. This development has since created a thriving business community and a reputation of excellence for office space in the heart of Cheshire.

The 100 acre office site was also chosen because of its fantastic road network links; Junction 19 on the M6 is less than five minutes drive, Manchester Airport is 20 minutes away and Crewe Train Station is 20 minutes drive providing an hourly service to London Euston (1hr 50 Minutes) proving there can be a perfect balance between location and workspace.

Osborne House since 1984 created on Gadbrook Park Business Park the following ‘design and build' bespoke offices for:

Barclays Bank 100,000 sq ft Astra Zeneca 25,000 sq ft Tarmac- McLean Homes 12,650 sq ft British Coal 12,500 sq ft BPB Paper & Packaging 12,500 sq ft Amec- CV Buchan 12,000 sq ft Hager Powertech 3,500 sq ft Cheshire Guidance Partnership 4,000 sq ft De La Rue 2,500 sq ft Fifield Glyn 1,900 sq ft

Since the 1980's, many other ‘design and build' developments have been built on Gadbrook Park Business Park. The most recent being Royal Court, a development by Willans a high specification self-contained offices from 1,000 sq ft to 20,299 sq ft with onsite parking. Gladman Developments then built a number of office buildings totalling 100,000 sq ft creating a great addition to the business park on Rudheath Way.

Osborne House's latest build is the café bar development on Gadbrook Mews built in September 2007 providing an on site eatery and meeting place for all the employees of the business park. A 156 space car park for Barclays Bank was also commissioned and completed in July 2008 further to the office investment created in the 1980's for Barclays Bank.
