This former chapel is being sold as Lot 6 of the former Shapwick School. The land included in Lot 6 is highlighted in light purple on the plan.
This property is a Grade II Listed former chapel which is ideally suited for a single (possibly two) residential units, subject to planning permission. This building was used as a classroom by the former Shapwick School. There has been an extension to the rear which, if taken down, would create a good sized garden. However, there is already a good sized front garden and the footprint at the rear does make the possibility of development greater in terms of overall floor area.
