Greenock’s west end church to be auctioned
A recent article with the Greenock Telegraph reports on the proposed sale of a dilapidated church in Scotland.
“Unique former church building occupying a prominent site within a popular residential area of Greenock, Inverclyde. Situated on the main drag to the town centre at Nelson street, built in the ‘Modern Movement’ late gothic style. The subjects comprise a main building accommodating the sanctuary and first floor viewing gallery, with two further buildings extending to the rear. A church hall, and kitchen/tea prep area is situated adjacent to the main Church building and a basement area beneath the main building accommodates ancillary storage and WC facilities. Internally the subjects are in a dilapidated state with significant refurbishment works required. The property benefits from many traditional features. The property would ideally suit redevelopment to a multitude of potential uses such as commercial, residential or leisure.”
The church closed some years ago and potential buyers are being warned that the church is in a state of disrepair.
According to the news article; in November, emergency services were called to the building after reports that the roof collapsed. A number of Scottish Fire and Rescue Service crews were sent as a precaution, including a major incident unit and heavy rescue team. A spokesman at the time said part of the hall roof at the rear of the building had caved in.
