An historic quay has been put on the market with a guide price of £1 million.

Flushing Quay is being marketed as an investment opportunity with a current turnover of £50,000 per year with the potential for further development.

Parking permits and rent paid for the lease of the restaurant make up the majority of its turnover with smaller amounts raised through fishing dues, shed rental and pay and display tickets.

The private quay "serves as a hub for local activity and represents a diverse commercial portfolio," according to estate agents Putterills.

The grade-II listed property includes a single-storey building currently used as The Waterside restaurant.

There are also 26 parking spaces along the quay and adjoining land.

It is believed to have been built in either the seventeenth or eighteenth century for the Trefusis family.

Flushing Ferry Ltd and several fisherman use the quay to land their vessels.

In its promotional material, a spokesperson for Putterills said: "Flushing Quay is a well-recognised maritime landmark, and important to the community and the village of Flushing."

They went on to say: "Flushing Quay symbolises an impressive historic background with an equally remarkable length of existence.

"Presently, the post-medieval quay is an income-generating asset which serves as a hub for local activity and represents a diverse commercial portfolio offering an investment opportunity with growth potential or perhaps a development opportunity, subject to necessary planning consents."

The quay was originally listed for sale by Millers Commercial.
