Former Costa and bank up for sale

Costa in Leyburn before its closure.

A dilapidated building in Leyburn town centre has been put back up for sale.

The former Costa and branch of HSBC is on the market for offers over £300,000 for the freehold.

The sale details state: “The existing commercial area of the property comprises ground floor sales with ancillary space at first floor.

“The property also offers a separate ground floor entrance to a large self-contained apartment, across the first and second floors, which has 6 double bedrooms.

“There is a small yard at the rear.”

The premises was a branch of HSBC until its closure in June 2017.

The building was then put on the market with an asking price of £220,000.

It opened as a Costa in 2019 but shut just a year later.

The dilapidated condition of the building has prompted complaints from town councillors who have attempted to contact the building’s owners to make improvements.

  1. I often wondered who was going to spend money on trendy coffee in Leyburn. Not big enough for a Wetherspoons I suppose. (Wouldn’t that shake things up!)

    • There are plenty of local places selling ‘trendy coffee’ and plenty of people support them. We did not need a multinational company in Leyburn. And as for a ‘Neverspoons’ God help us😱

  2. I’m sure that many people, like me, boycotted Costa as it was a threat to the nice locally owned cafes who deserve our support. I knew it would fail.
