Property Reference



Former Primitive Methodist Chapel, 14 Shrewsbury Road, Edgmond, Newport, Shropshire, TF10 8HT.


The site is located essentially within the setup of Edgmond village. It lies on the Shrewsbury Road and is surrounded by residential development, with a number of houses directly opposite and public playing fields to the east. To the north is Edgmond Village Hall.

Edgmond lies approximately 9 miles from central Telford, 10 miles from Market Drayton, 15 miles from Stafford and 17.5 miles from Shrewsbury. The village is well serviced, being close to a number of trunk roads such as the A41, A442 dual carriageway and M54 motorway.


The property comprises a former Methodist Chapel, being a detached single storey building of solid brick construction beneath a pitched tiled roof. The accommodation provides an entrance hall, congregation area, kitchen and WC facilities.

There is also a former Sunday School on site of timber clad construction. This building is currently dilapidated and unfit for purpose.

The site lends itself to being redeveloped for residential purposes involving the demolition of the existing Sunday School building.

It should be noted that there is a cemetery to the rear of the chapel, which is to remain in the ownership of the vendor and access will be required for its ongoing maintenance.

  • Planning

    We understand the property has planning permission for its existing chapel use. The vendor has obtained some pre-application advice from the Local Planning Authority on the basis of the demolition of the existing Sunday School and an outline application for the erection of a single detached residential dwelling, with a later application for a sympathetic conversion of the chapel itself. The Council wishes to preserve the chapel, which is a locally listed building, and they also have a vested interest in the amenities facing the chapel. Their preference would be for single bed units or live work units. Full details of the planning situation are available upon request from the agent.
