VICTORIA Carpets has sold its former sports ground in Kidderminster for £2m.

The Kidderminster flooring company says the land off Spennells Valley Road has not been used for more than 20 years.

The site, which is a mile away from Victoria's head office in Worcester Road, was sold for £2m on Wednesday (January 6) to an undisclosed buyer and already has planning permission for housing.

A proposal submitted by Victoria in 2009 to build a hotel, pub and bowling facility on the site never came to fruition.

The site has been unused since since the merger and relocation of Kidderminster Victoria Cricket Club to Chester Road in 2003.
