Halls auctioneers hope to be in a position to answer a prospective bidder’s prayers when they offer two former churches for sale by auction next week.

Green Methodist Church, between Montgomery and Bishops Castle, will be going under the hammer in a 13-lot collective property and land auction at Halls’ Shrewsbury headquarters on Friday at 3pm.

With a £50,000 to £60,000 guide price, Wattlesborough Methodist Church is being sold on behalf of Rea Valley Methodist Churches. The church was known as Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel, when built in 1893 on land given by Sir Baldwin Leighton, of Loton Estate.

Green Methodist Church, which has a guide price of £30,000 to £40,000, is a semi-detached former place of worship built in a rural setting in 1862.

The church has high ceilings, four long case windows, a lean-to store, garden space to one side, good road frontage and is surrounded by a neighbouring garden and fields, with views over the Camlad Valley.

Viewing is by appointment with Halls’ Ellesmere office on Tel: 01691 622602.
