A FORMER church could be snapped up for £100,000 and turned into an art gallery, library or a nursery.

Parkeston Methodist Church on Tyler Street celebrated its 125th birthday in October 12 but was forced to close down in May last year.

It is now listed by Fenn Wright estate agents at an asking price of £100,000 and is classified as a D1 property meaning it could be used for numerous public services including a medical centre or a museum.

A spokesman for Fenn Wright’s commercial department said: “We probably get three or four churches come up for sale in a year and there can be quite a lot of interest in them if they are in the right area.

“Parkeston Methodist church is a very interesting building in terms of architecture with its red bricks which and I believe it was built in the 1800s.

“There are currently no plans for any changes to be made to the property so at the moment it is set to be sold as it is.”
