A CHAPEL in St Asaph that dates back to the 1820s is set to go under the hammer next month, with a guide price of just £50,000.

Capel Bethlehem, on Bronwylfa Square, is one of the cheapest properties for sale in North Wales.

Estate agents Clough and Co have set a guide price of £50,000-60,000 ahead of its tenders closing on March 17.

Bethlehem Independent Chapel dates back to 1828, and was later rebuilt in the Gothic style in 1902.

More than 100 years later, it is now viewed as a potential development opportunity, with the listing saying it “may be of interest to those seeking development properties”.

The chapel is made up of a porch area, main chapel hall, kitchen, and toilet, and benefits from central heating.

There are no burial grounds on the site, although if there is still a covenant on the premises, this would prohibit the sale or distribution of alcohol on its grounds.

The listing continues: “A fine example of a detached Welsh Chapel situated in a convenient position within the City of St Asaph being within a short drive from the A55 North Wales Expressway.

“This impressive Chapel includes stone walls with part pebble dashed external elevation and part cement rendered under a pitched main roof clad with Welsh slate.

“The property maybe of interest to those seeking large open space for storage purposes, amenity/leisure use or property developers.

“Prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with the planning authority as to what is permissible.”
