Set back just off the A48 running through Newnham towards Gloucester, in a commanding position on the High Street, The Old Chapel is a wonderful example of historic architecture dating back to the mid 1800's. Retaining many original features and having a 900sqft mezzanine that was constructed in 2004, this property now comes to the market with full planning permission for "change of use from mixed use (shop A1 and associated workshop B1) to 1 no.self contained residential unit (C3). Insertion of rooflights. Replacement of windows." (Forest of Dean District Council Planning Ref: - P1303/21FUL). Since 2002 the chapel has been used to house a business specialising in supplying made to measure furnishings, traditional and modern re-upholstery, furniture restoration, furnishing and decorative items. The building still retains many original features including stained glass windows and exposed stonework.

Internally the chapel comprises the main showroom section with an additional workshop and office at the rear, there is a small kitchen area to the front of the building along with a cloakroom. The imposing mezzanine above with galleried balustrade sits beneath the exposed vaulted roof with stairs to the front and rear. There are also two Gigaclear connection points installed for Internet.
