A landmark city-centre church declared surplus to requirements two years ago is in line to be bought by a nearby congregation which is too big for its building.

The former St George’s West Church in Shandwick Place would become the new home of Charlotte Baptist Chapel, which has been based at the west end of Rose Street for nearly 200 years.

Negotiations are under way between the two churches and it is understood a sale price of more than £1 million is being discussed.
