Buyers on the hunt for a new home may have the option of living in a church - because one has gone up for sale in a Bucks village.

Stokenchurch Methodist Church is being sold after dwindling congregation numbers meant it became "surplus to requirements".

The former Methodist Church in Coopers Court Road was built in 1896 and selling website Zoopla describes it as having "typical late Victorian elevations, said to be the most elaborate for a Methodist Church in Buckinghamshire".

It can be bought for £325,000, with suggested uses including anything described in the D1 planning category - clinics, health centres, day centres, museums, libraries or halls or other church uses - or with planning permission, offices or an "intriguing" home.

However, anyone interested in turning the striking building into a home would have to show that there is no need to keep the building for community use.

Agents selling the church argued that there is already the Longburrow Hall nearby - adding that the Methodist Church itself shut down because of lack of use.
