Auction properties, Shropshire & Shrewsbury

Halls have some interesting properties up for auction this week. I've picked out three to show you. 
First the cute as a button chapel, above, at Melverley about 10 miles from Oswestry, Shropshire. There's not much to it - basically one vaulted room (21' by 18') - with a bit of garden to the front and side. But it's in a lovely village location and has some pretty period features - such as those gorgeous metal windows.

Melverley Methodist Church is up for auction on Friday 29th April, with a guide price of £15k-£20k. Details and more pictures here.
Springfields below, also up for auction on the 29th, comes with over four acres of land, gardens, and adjoining outbuildings.

Not the prettiest of buildings but lots of renovation scope and a lovely, secluded location three or so miles outside the village of Rowley, in Shrewsbury.
Two reception rooms, kitchen and loo downstairs' three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.
Some nice features - though not sure how I feel about the flypaper:

Regular reader Ed tipped me off about Springfields. As he said:
Super position, with 4.3 acres, too. Cow shed offers the potential for more footprint. New windows, new plumbing and probably new electrics needed, though.
Auction guide price of £180k. Details and more pictures here and on Rightmove here.
And if four acres isn't quite enough land for you, how about 10.74?
Watery Lane, below, at Trewern, about five miles from Oswestry comes with a good block of quality pasture land and various other parcels of farmland in a fabulous location.

The three-bed property "comes for sale to dissolve a family partnership" (battling brothers? warring divorcees?) and, as well as the house and the land, the sale includes a large stone barn.

Auction guide price is £180k-£200k. Details and more pictures here.
