The Methodist Chapel is a substantial and attractive building providing a most interesting development opportunity, extending to approximately 1700 square feet, or thereabouts, with Planning Permission granted for conversion into two dwellings, with parking, situated in a convenient location in the centre of the North Shropshire village of Baschurch.

The chapel, which is believed to date back, originally, to 1874, offers spacious internal accommodation of great character with a number of interesting original features including stained glass windows, internal panelling etc.

The property now has full planning permission for conversion and alteration of the redundant Methodist Chapel in to two dwellings (application number: 16/02251/FUL). The permission is for conversion in to a 3 / 4 Bedroomed two storey dwelling and a 2 / 3 Bedroomed two storey dwelling.
