Jenny Austen, from Auction House, said: "We've already had a fair bit of interest, so the property will hopefully sell.

"We are looking to attract commercial buyers for the downstairs area and the premises has the potential to have flats and housing at the top if this is eventually granted by planners.

"The high street is definitely evolving and these changes have been spurred on by the pandemic.

"There is an increasing need for split properties, where one level is commercial and the other is housing."
