A Grade II listed former church that is a prominent landmark in Bath city centre is being offered for sale by Colliers International.  

Located just off historic Georgian Queen Square, on the corner of St Paul’s Place and Chapel Row, the former Holy Trinity Church closed to worship some years ago and the Diocese of Bath & Wells is now seeking a purchaser.

The nineteenth century former church is within the Bath Conservation Area and Bath World Heritage site, and was designed and constructed in the French Gothic style by Wilson, Wilcox and Wilson between 1873 and 1874 on the former site of St Mary’s Chapel.

It addition to its Grade II listing, the building has a separate Grade II listing covering the ‘temple ornament’ within its grounds.

Christopher Dawson, Director at Colliers International Development Consulting and Agency said: “This is a rare opportunity to purchase the freehold interest in a substantial former church that is a landmark in Bath.

“It is suitable for conversion into a number of uses, subject to the necessary planning permissions and ecclesiastical consents, and based upon interest to date and existing enquiry levels we expect it to attract varied expressions of interest.”

“One of the vendor’s key considerations is to secure a suitable alternative use which delivers a long term future for this important heritage asset.”

The building has a total gross internal area of approximately 7,188 sq ft, and is currently configured in three distinct parts, namely a large nave with vaulted roof, an adjoining northern nave containing a small hall, offices and ancillary facilities, and a vestry.

It is being offered for sale as a single unit on a freehold basis, subject to ecclesiastical covenants and consents.

Comprehensive guidance on the disposal process and sale conditions are available from Colliers International.

Andrew Frost of the Development Agency and Consulting team said: “Interested parties are encouraged to obtain guidance information the earliest possible date, and we would be delighted to help with any enquiries.”
