Bescot Crescent offers excellent transport links being situated close to Junction 9 of the M6 motorway, Walsall town centre, the Walsall ring road and just 0.5 miles from Bescot Stadium railway station, which provides direct rail travel to Birmingham New Street station, Wolverhampton and Walsall.

Paul Jarvis, Asset Management Director at Buccleuch Property, said: “There is growing demand for modern accommodation in the area and Bescot Crescent offers an excellent refurbishment opportunity. The units are in a strong location and have the potential to be highly attractive to new tenants following refurbishment.

“We continue to actively seek new investment projects of this nature in the West Midlands and across the UK.”
