Mr Harrison said: “We’ve received over 100 expressions of interest but it has taken some time to sieve through the time-wasters and get to a shortlist of buyers with the wherewithal to buy the site.”

Although Praxis did not quote a guide price, they had turned down early offers over £500,000, were inundated with inquiries and received more than 40 calls the day the ‘For Sale’ board went up in September.

Originally the Fighting Cocks Inn, the owner of Nino’s in Rawtenstall bought the Red Lees Road premises in 2011.
