A FORMER Grade II listed church in Malpas is going under the hammer later this month - but you'll need at least £120,000 to buy it.

Potential buyers are eagerly anticipating the upcoming collective property and land auction which is taking place in Shrewsbury on Wednesday, July 19.

The Church of St Mary Magdalene, located in Tallarn Green, Malpas, is just one of the plots that will be going under the hammer at the auction with Halls estate agents. 


With an estimated price range of £120,000 to £150,000, the property presents an alluring prospect for bidders.

This former parish church boasts an impressive stature along with accompanying gardens and a separate grass paddock.

Extending 0.6 of an acre, Halls says the property offer “immense potential for a range of alternative usages, subject to planning consent”. 

Situated in the sought-after village of Tallarn Green, which lies approximately five miles from Malpas on the Cheshire-Shropshire border, the church consists of a nave, chancel, and sanctuary.
