The town, which is attempting to get city status, has a population of around 56,000 persons within a 10 mile radius.


The former Dumfries Baptist Church, is an attractive, detached and category ‘B’ listed sandstone building occupying a prominent corner position at the junction of Newall Terrace with Catherine Street.

The building is of regular shape and is well maintained/presented, containing the following accommodation and gross floor areas:

The Rateable Value is £4,875 and the building qualifies for 100% rates relief through the Small Business Bonus Scheme, subject to occupier status.
