It says the red brick building is suffering structural defects as a result of ground conditions resulting in subsidence of the building.

The Leader:  A Morris Marshall & Poole spokesperson said: "Subsequent to demolition and clearance, the site is well located in the village and within easy reach of all local amenities and facilities.


"It would therefore be suitable for a variety of alternative commercial or residential uses - subject to planning consents."

The online auction has been set for Thursday, November 2, at 2pm, and has gone up as perhaps one of the cheapest properties in North Wales currently on the market. 

The church based in the heart of the Welsh village, Rhos, has been closed as a place of worship for quite some time, according to the listing.
