The former Barclays Bank branch on Aughton Street in Ormskirk town centre is due to go under the hammer in auctioneer Pugh’s online property sale in December.

The 4,000 sq ft corner building, which closed as a bank in October last year and is adjoined by a branch of Costa Coffee and close to Starbucks and a Marks & Spencer Foodhall, has been given a £350,000 guide price and consists of three storeys and a basement.

Pugh associate director Edward Feather said: “The former Barclays branch is a striking building right in  the heart of Ormskirk, where the Edge Hill University campus is a dynamic presence in the town and provides a boost across the whole local market.

“The town is in a good strategic location between Liverpool, Southport and Preston and although fairly small it has an affluent and growing population and is a really great place to invest. There’s a range of potential new uses to which this property could be adapted, with the necessary planning consent, and we have already received several enquiries from interested parties.”

Next month’s Pugh auction, which includes the former Barclays branch in Ormskirk, has new lots added daily and will be held here.
