The former Methodist Chapel in Framfield Road, Uckfield, is up for sale with the possibility of it having a new use as a residential development.
The chapel was made redundant after Methodist and United Reformed Church congregations merged to form the Cornerstone Church. They meet at the now re-named former United Reformed Church opposite the Applegreen service station in New Town.
Dixon Vince Estate Agents, who took the photographs in this article, say the sale of the Framfield Road building offers a fascinating opportunity to purchase a former chapel and adjoining church hall, offering huge potential for a variety of uses, subject to planning.
The accommodation includes entrance hall, office, former chapel, former church hall, kitchen, rear hall, ladies and gents wc, and gardens.
Julian Vince said: “We are suggesting that it could have potential for conversion to one or more residential units, or, indeed, it could be used for some sort of commercial use, but whatever somebody considers they will have to buy it as it is and then put in a planning application for change of use.”
He thinks the chapel was purpose built with the flat-roofed church hall, kitchen, office and WC added in the 1950s.
Offers in the region of £250,000 are being sought for the building.
