Abbey Warehouse

In 2008 Mango Homes completed the careful restoration of the Abbey Warehouse in Penzance with the support

of the Penzance Civic Society, Penwith District Council and Heritage Lottery. The restoration received awards from The Cornish Buildings Group and Michelmores Western Morning News.

 

The Abbey Warehouse is a fine grade II listed granite warehouse directly on the water's edge in Penzance. It has fantastic views over the harbour and out to sea. It was built as a bonded warehouse for storage of alcohol and tobacco for the customs and excise over 150 years ago.

 

The property recently made the national headlines with the discovery of a network 200 year old smuggler's tunnels.

 

The building is now let to a subsidiary of Vattenfall which specialises in off shore wind farms.
