Expanding insurance firm moves into former Shropshire court, thanks to Bulleys Bradbury

An expanding insurance company from Sussex has moved into a Shropshire town’s former courthouse, thanks to a deal completed by Bulleys Bradbury.

Falcon Insurance Services Ltd, based in Worthing, Sussex, is recruiting up to 11 local staff to work from its new Midlands branch in Suite 1 at The Court, the old magistrates’ building on the outskirts of Wellington town centre.

Terry Mills, managing director at Falcons Insurance, said: “We wanted to expand into the Midlands and saw The Court as very convenient base.

“It’s close to the town centre and good amenities including public transport, which is what we need to get new staff to the office.”

Meanwhile, Rebecca and Bruce Shepherd, who run a private podiatry practice with four associate workers, have moved into Suite 6 in the building at 24 Church Street.

The new deals leave just two offices still to let in The Court including Suite 3, the actual former court room which used to contain the magistrates’ bench.

Richard Bradbury, director of Telford-based Bulleys Bradbury, which is marketing and managing The Court, said: “This is a landmark office building, conveniently located on the immediate outskirts of Wellington town centre.

“The building was developed as multi-let offices 18 years ago and provides six individual suites with onsite car parking to the rear.

“The property is a short walk from the town centre and railway station, and is proving to be a popular target for firms looking for impressive premises.”
