A FORMER church will go under the hammer at an auction next month.

The Baptist Chapel on Charles Street in Golborne will be on the list at an auction at the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester on Wednesday, June 5 in an event held by SDL Auctions North West.

The semi-detached property has a guide price of £55,000+* and offers single-storey accommodation split into the main chapel, community room, kitchen and vestry.

Outside, it has a small garden on three sides of the building.

Head of residential auctions at SDL Auctions North West Andy Thompson said: “The Golborne chapel is an attractive building which would lend itself to a variety of uses."

Entries are still being invited for the auction.

Andy added: “There is no typical auction property, we sell all kinds of properties, including houses, flats, commercial buildings and plots of land.

"It’s a very popular method of sale for a number of reasons, not least the transparency and speed of transactions, with no drawn-out chains or unexpected delays.”
