Droitwich Advertiser: The historic town centre building is up for sale. The historic town centre building is up for sale.

ONE of the most historic properties in Droitwich Spa is set to go under the hammer.

The building at 44-46 High Street, which was most recently the home of Wychavon District Council’s Community Contact Centre, has been put up for auction by the authority.

It is a Grade II Listed landmark and is available at a guide price of £175,000.

The freehold site is believed to date from the 1600s and has in its time been a bakery, a cake and bread shop and a cafe. It also housed the town’s JobCentre service until recently.

During the mid-1990s it underwent extensive modernisation and improvement works, including a rear extension to provide offices and a centrally glazed atrium.

It occupies a prominent corner position at the junction of High Street and Worcester Road.

Ian Tudor, director of CPBigwood Chartered Surveyors & Auctioneers, said: “It is of great character and could be suited to a variety of commercial uses.”

The auction takes place on Wednesday, October 31 in the Holte Suite at Aston Villa Football Club at 11am.

Got nice memories of tea with Mum there, so was a bit disappointed when I had to go there to pay my Council Tax. Could it be a restaurant again, hope so!
