Planning permission has been given for St Peter's to be given a new lease of life through conversion into a three bedroom home with new access, turning and parking area.

Simon Pontifex, of chartered surveyors SPA who are handling the sale, said: "The church has panoramic views over the Severn Vale towards the Prestbury Park racecourse amphitheatre, "It's a safe bet prospective buyers will be making tracks to view the property and assess its unique potential."
