Former Church with Development Potential - Grade II* Listed Building

The property is located in the historic rural village of Castle Hedingham  approximately 9.5 miles north of Braintree and 7.1 miles south east of Sudbury. The village lies close to its larger but less well known neighbour, Sible Hedingham and the crossroads of Hedingham Road and the A1017 trunk road which provides a direct road link to Haverhill and Cambridge to the north east. 

The building is situated to the south of the village centre in a prominent location on the north side of Queen Street and opposite the junction with Sheepcot Road.  The property benefits from its own road access and a part tarmac and part grass mat parking area for some six vehicles in front of the Church.  

To the side and rear of the Church is a former burial ground. 

The Church building dates from 1842.  The building is Grade II* Listed and arranged on ground and first floors with an adjacent single-storey meeting room arranged along the western elevation. The building appears to have been extended at a later date to allow the installation of two rear stone staircases and an additional gallery which now houses the Church organ. 

Externally, the surrounding land extends to approximately 0.24 acres (991 sq.m).

The boundaries to the graveyard are defined by a wrought iron and timber boarded fence. The side boundaries are marked by brick walls and the property adjoins residential homes to the north and south. 

The Church is Listed by English Heritage as Grade II * in 1984. The recital refers to both the interior and exterior features and the box pews.

The  existing  use  of  the  Church  is  as  a  place  of worship or Church Hall, which falls within Class D1 of the Use Classes Order 1987. The building is considered ideally suited to community, church or alternative uses falling within that Use Class such as clinic, health centre, crèche or nursery and other uses subject to planning consent.  Potential purchasers are advised to contact the Local Planning Authority.
