Historic properties for sale

A WEDDING venue in Gretna has gone up for sale.


The high profile Anvil Hall is now on the market for £500,000.
It was previously the Catholic St Ninian’s Church, built in 1917 but by the start of the 21st century congregational numbers had fallen to just 14.
It was then that local businessman Heath Hampson stepped in, purchasing it in 2003 and converting into a wedding venue, keeping many of the traditional features include a large aisle and nave.
However, he also added a live web cam so ceremonies can be viewed from around the globe and has become popular for candlelight services.
In nearby Kirtlebridge, another prominent property has come on the market.
The 15th century Robgill Tower is for sale for £1.9 million.
The refurbished Tower House includes six reception rooms, a medieval vaulted dining room and six bedrooms. It sits in 38 acres and also boasts an indoor swimming pool and gym, stables, an indoor riding arena, lodge house and walled garden and is a listed building.
One of its previous owners was Lottery winner Paul Maddison, who scooped an £11m jackpot in 1995 and bought the property two years later. He moved out in 2008.
