Newfield Industrial Estate is an established estate found in Tunstall. The location of this estate offers a convenient and accessible solution, near to the A500 junction. The estate is home to 50 industrial units ranging in size from 1,500 sqft to 30,000 sqft. Site facilities include extensive parking, security on site and security lighting.


Dave McFarland is the owner of Shinka Ju Jitsu Academy which is celebrating its second year in the Newfield Industrial Estate unit.

Dave said: “Sandyford Properties has been brilliant. They have been approachable and not overbearing.

“Sandyford Properties has made it possible for me to take up residence early and with 6 months free rent.

“The previous occupiers wanted to get out of their contract early and so they put together an agreement that I could move in and the rent was already covered by the previous occupiers so I didn’t have to pay anything extra.”

He continued to say, “My business has absolutely grown since I moved into the Newfield unit. I ran my classes out of school halls and village halls before which came with challenges.

“I had to consider things like school holidays and the place being closed, and I had to unpack and repack all of my equipment and it just didn’t look professional. Now I have my own space, everything is there ready, and I have no restrictions on opening times.”
