The gavel was nearly reduced to £43,000 when one fell through – then a new bidder entered.

The limit eventually reached £50,000 – midway between the £40,000 to £60,000 guide price.

The property is advertised as “Sale As Viewed” and is suitable for a builder or investor. The proximity to the new third river crossing was described by the auctioneer, who said it was “definitely uninhabitable” and needed a lot of work, including crucially the front door.
