Beautiful Old Chapel


With Full Planning Permission

(Partially restored)

 The Old Chapel, New Road, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, PE16 6BJ

Present Day: The Old Chapel, New Road, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, PE16 6BJ.

This is a partially restored church building for sale. The current owners have, regretfully, been unable to complete the project. Consequently, it is now available for sale and a new owner to make this character property into a fine and unique home.

A very large, detached former Methodist Chapel which has planning consent granted for conversion to a large, luxury 3-4 bedroom home with a master suite consisting of large bedroom, en-suite and dressing room on a mezzanine level (to be installed). Formal separate sitting room and a huge open plan main living area, consisting of living/dining area, kitchen, toilet and storage cupboard. Work has been started on the property and approximately £100,000 has been spent so far. The owner is happy to email a list of works currently completed.

The ground floor area is approximately 2368.1 square feet or 220 square metres.

There are many beautiful features including stunning stained glass leaded windows which have been fully restored. We have installed a large log burner in the sitting room and also a flue has been installed at the other end of the building so you can add another log burner should you wish.

Olden Times: The Old Chapel, New Road, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, PE16 6BJ.


This beautiful old building was built in 1903 originally as a Sunday School, was then used as a Chapel but has also been a penny cinema, a youth club and has had soldiers billeted here during the war!

Planning Permission:

Current planning is for a single dwelling. However, when we purchased the property less than 2 years ago it had permission to create 2 houses – 1 x 2 bed and 1 x 3 bed semis. There remains the possibility of reverting back to these plans if required, subject to permission from the District Council. Copies of one or both sets of plans can be emailed upon request.

The Site:

The Chapel stands on a large plot in the town, easy walking distance to the shops. There is plenty of private off-road parking. Included in the sale is a 2 bedroom static caravan, with shower room, toilet, kitchen/diner and living room with mains water and electricity. Also, a double pop-up garage currently used for storage of our furniture. The chapel has mains electric and water supplied with washing machine connected. Also, BT landline and broadband have been installed.


Chatteris is a small friendly rural town which lies 24 miles from Cambridge, 14 miles from Huntingdon and 12 miles from Ely with its famous cathedral. Easy access to the A1 and M11. Fast direct trains from Huntingdon to Kings Cross are under an hour. Also, there is a station at March (7 miles away) which has a direct train to Stansted Airport and also into central London.
