Church Brow connects with Victoria Road and then London Road with Capitol Retail Park providing retail and leisure facilities being within a short walk from the property.

The property comprises a detached two-storey building of cut stone construction beneath both pitched slate and flat roof. The property is constructed in two parts, being the original building dating back to 1835 and more recent addition dating back to the 1970’s.
The original element is used as meeting/function rooms and offices whilst the more recent extension used as 2 squash courts.

Externally there is a good sized tarmacadamed car park with access shared with the church in addition to a grassed area to the west elevation.

respective planning and heritage consents.
