Property Reference



Former United Reformed Church, Weirbrook, Sandford, West Felton, Nr Oswestry, Shropshire, SY11 4EY.


The property is known as Weirbrook URC, but is located on the west side of the A5 on the road leading to Sandford. It lies approximately 6 miles southeast of Oswestry and 14 miles northwest of Shrewsbury.

The setting is rural, with only a few houses nearby but within easy reach of the A5 and the village of West Felton.


The property is a former church and graveyard on a self-contained site of circa 0.23 acres (0.094 hectares).

The church building comprises a detached, single storey historic structure, which dates from 1910, being of traditional red brick construction beneath a pitched slate roof, and incorporating a number of older stone building blocks containing the names of those who laid them.

The interior of the building, beyond the porch, is laid out as a church including a meeting room within the main body and a vestry, together with attached outbuildings to the rear. The outbuildings provide a store, toilet closet and boiler room, all of which are accessed from outside.

Externally, there is a lawned area immediately surrounding the building with the graveyard to the side and gated access points.
