A FORMER Methodist church is up for sale.

Dacre, Son & Hartley estate agents have listed the property online and are seeking offers in excess of £70,000.

The church, in the idyllic Craven village of Rathmell, near Settle, lends itself to a variety of alternative uses, subject to appropriate consent.

The single-storey building covers approximately 690 sq ft and boasts stained glass windows and high ceilings. The main building dates back to 1846 before it was extended in 1903.

Tom Galloway, manager of the estate agents' Settle office, said: “In its current configuration, the property offers a worship road of generous proportions, its size emphasised by the lofty ceilings. In addition, there is a useful meeting room, a fitted kitchen and WC.”
