Police have arrested three men and seized 1,646 suspected cannabis plants across 23 rooms after executing a drugs raid in Egremont.
The find was made this morning after officers carried out the warrant in Bookwell at 8.35am.
Three men were all arrested on suspicion of the cultivation of cannabis.
They remain in custody this evening.
Detective Inspector Hayley Wilkinson said: “The public are likely to see a larger-than-normal police presence around this property as our enquiries continue.
“We take all suspected drugs cultivation seriously and would continue to urge anyone who has any suspicions about any buildings that might be used for illegal purposes to come forward with information.”
