    This church is a grade II listed building built in 1846, it compromises of a seven bay nave and lean to aisles, chancel and a vaulted roof with ribs. It's on the market for around £300,000 with planning permission for conversion into one dwelling.

    One point to note is that the Church of England have removed a lot of the valuable items with English Heritage listed building consent. These comprise items such as the font, organ, bells and all of the ground floor stained glass windows. You might think that this is a good thing - Preserve what can be preserved, but the contents, including the stained glass windows were sold by auction leaving the building less than water tight.

    Its no secret I hate to see buildings like this, however it is a necessity to document them while they are still there. The skills that built these magnificent buildings have long since gone, leaving us with the problem of when these buildings are gone, they will never be replaced.
