A 19th Century Powys Chapel is on the market for the same price as a Ford Fiesta.

Llwydiarth Chapel near Llanfair Caereinion is currently on the market with an asking price of just £20,000 – roughly the same as a 2023 model Fiesta.

The Calvinist Chapel was built in 1874 and is currently owned by the Church of Wales who are looking to sell it on.

County Times:

Morris, Marshall and Poole who are handling the sale of the chapel said: “The property comprises a Chapel (including pews and pulpit) measuring 9.84m x 7.38m.

“The Chapel is constructed of stone and slate with attached brick dilapidated sheds at the rear.

“The Late Victorian (circa 1874) Detached Redundant Chapel rurally located adjoining the B4395 Llwydiarth to Llanfyllin road approximately 10 miles from Llanfair Caereinion and 20 miles from Welshpool.”


They also noted that the chapel is currently exempt from having an Energy Efficiency Rating.

However the price for the chapel has remained low due to a catch.

County Times:

According to Morris, Marshall and Poole, “the property is offered for sale without planning consent to convert to alternative use”.

This means that anyone wishing to redevelop the site would need to go through a planning permission process with Powys County Council.

They also are advising customers that for those who might be interested that viewings of the chapel are “strictly by appointment with the selling agent”.
