The site is readily accessible by road from the A140, the main highway that connects Ipswich to Norwich. Twelve miles to the south, the A140 links to the A14, which is the main road connecting the port of Felixstowe to Cambridge and the Midlands. 2 miles to the north the A140 links to the A143, which links the site to Diss, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft.
Diss railway station is approximately three miles away with a main line service from Norwich to London Liverpool Street.
Nearby occupiers include Roy Humphrey, Transam Trucking, Stramit, Cranswick Country Foods (now on site constructing a major industrial complex), EPRL and the proposed Progress Power power station, the latter with planning permission.
