Mark Robinson, partner at Robinson Layer, told the Ely Standard: “This is a prominent property with ground floor retail premises of about 370 sq ft and offices over of some 400 sq ft.

“It had a long history as the location for the Ely News, but it was a complex deal to finalise after two abortive sales. Being a selling agent does demand perseverance with a site like this.”
