Mountpark Ferrybridge is strategically positioned for the national road network situated at the intersection of J33 M62 and A1(M), benefitting from strong demographics and proximity to major northern conurbations.

Silkwood Park is situated on Junction 40 of the M1 in an extremely prominent location being a flagship business park in West Yorkshire and is located only a short distance from the intersection of the M62 which means it is in a strategic location for access throughout the North of England.
