A fixture of Church Street looks set to be moving on – as a members club puts itself up for sale.Advertisement
The building housing the 55th Division Association Club is now on the market.
The drinking establishment would make way for any new owners and Eckersley who are marketing the property say a range of new uses would be considered.
Priced at £175,000 the freehold of the building is for sale.

They state: “The property comprises a two-storey serviceman’s/social members club. It is of traditional construction beneath a flat roof with single glazed timber frame windows. The property benefits from a basement with pedestrian access to the rear.
“The Club provides a main lounge with rear games room and toilet facilities on the ground floor. To the first floor there is an L-shaped concert/function room with stage, bar, toilet facilities and a small front office suite.
“Externally there is a large rear yard area and smoking shelter.
“Whilst the premises presently remain occupied full vacant possession is readily available.”
A statement on the club’s Facebook page said: “The club is not up for general sale it is for administration reasons only that the sign is up. We are open as usual and will stay that way.”
In 2015 the club hit the headlines for unknowingly hiring its function room out ahead of a ‘No More Refugees’ protest.
