Potential buyers need not even worry about the pain of planning permission as it was granted in March 2004 to provide five bedroom accommodation over two storeys.

Offers as low as £150,000 are being taken by Reeds Rains estate agents for the old church because the buyer still has work to do.

The basics are there however of a kitchen, three bathrooms, several reception rooms and bedrooms ready to move into.
