Historic church in Cornwall with bell tower is up for sale

A Grade I listed church in Cornwall complete with a bell tower, vestry and gravestones has been put up for sale with a price tag of £60,000.

For sale by informal tender, St Pinnock Church in the hamlet of St Pinnock, near Liskeard, dates back to the 14th century and closed for worship in 2017.

Constructed from local stone with feature granite lintels and quoins under a slate roof, the medieval church could make a fabulous Grand Designs-style home – although prospective purchasers are asked to satisfy themselves that their intended use meets statutory planning requirements.

Accessed via a Lychgate the churchyard with gravestones surrounds the church with a pathway leading to the entrance porch and tower.
