The Old Rectory, Claypit Street, Whitchurch Urban - Shropshire (UA)

This C18 former rectory was used as a listening station during World War II. Urgent works were previously undertaken to make the roof watertight and halt structural movement but the service wing remains in very poor condition. Section 106 contributions have been secured for the repair of the building. A programme of urgent remedial works is being compiled and is due to be implemented before the end of 2018. The redevelopment of the building is complicated by adjacent land and property ownership issues and the owner is still exploring options for its re-use.
