Paul Thompson, managing director of auction house Pugh, said: “The property has been derelict for some time and it would be good to see it get a new lease of life and become an asset to the community once again.

“The building itself has plenty of character and could be redeveloped into stylish living or business space with an imaginative refurbishment project, subject to the relevant planning consent.
