Wrexham Council are sending the Ebenezer Chapel in Cefn Mawr to auction next month.

The building, located in Cefn Mawr, received a significant injection of grant funding in 2008, which saw it converted into a community centre with office and gallery spaces and a café bar.

However, the project encountered financial difficulties because of a lack of visitors and the former Baptist chapel site closed its doors five years later.

The property was set to be auctioned off in 2019 by Wrexham Council amid interest from the Plas Kynaston Canal Group, which had ambitious plans to link it to a new cable car system.

However, the auction was pulled pending that interest – before returning to the auction block where no sale completed.

The new auction has brief public details that note the property is: “…a vacant commercial premises extending to approximately 320sqm situated on the outskirts of Wrexham.

“Believing to date back to the late 1800’s and having undergone an extensive renovation programme in recent years the property has been used most recently as a community centre and offers a wide variety of potential future uses, subject to gaining the necessary planning consent.”

The fifteen document strong legal pack is available from the auctioneers, detailing the usual land registry searches and other such historic details.

Bidding for the property starts on Tuesday 23 March and ends a day later.
