The 6.2 hectare site - first used as an orphanage and then as student accommodation - is currently known as the Harris Knowledge Park.

It was bought in 2006 by Preston multi-millionaire Yusef Bhailok.

The site is currently being marketed by agents Cushman and Wakefield who are marketing it as a site ripe for residential or commercial development.
