Outstanding residential conversion opportunity in the centre of Trowbridge with detailed planning consent for conversion of the existing church buildings to create 26 cottages and apartments


This is an important listed property, occupying a very prominent position, close to the centre of Wiltshire's county town of Trowbridge.

The buildings which date from the late 19th Century with later additions are traditional in style and enjoy a site with two vehicular access points from Church Street, close to the town centre, on a site of approximately 1.1 acres.

The Church itself was used as a place of worship until recently, together with other community halls having similar uses. A number of the buildings have already been used as offices and there are traditional period cottages.

A detailed planning permission has now been granted, permitting the conversion of all of the ancillary buildings to produce 20 flats and maisonettes, for the main church itself to be converted into a single residential property and the original cottages and offices to be converted into 3 houses and 2 flats.

The overall scheme consented will provide 26 self-contained residential units with car parking, a total of some 2,275 sq.m (24,500 sq.ft) of accommodation


Upon approaching Trowbridge on A361 follow signs to the town centre into Elizabeth Way at the first major roundabout then right into Wyke Road at the second roundabout leading into The Dawn and Islington. Proceed over the roundabout into Prospect Place (B3106). Turn right at the lights into Conigre leading to Church Street and the property is on the left where cars may be parked for view times.
