“Located in the centre of Silloth offering a range of local amenities in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.”

Trinity Church based on Wampool Street is a mid-Victorian church dating from circa 1888, now closed for services and offered for sale by North Cumbria Methodist Circuit.

It looks right out onto Silloth Green which hosts a number of different events throughout the year.

Outside there are gravelled and concrete gardens to the front and side enclosed by a low wall with metal railings. To the rear of the property is a further concrete area with gated access, formerly the Wesleyan Sunday School.

Inside, the building has the main chapel, two rooms, a side hall, kitchen, inner hall and cloakroom.
