The shop served the village for at least three decades and was popular with residents who launched a fundraising campaign shortly after the blaze to raise money for the people who ran it. 

The premises is now due to be sold at auction in April with a guide price of £50, 000. 

The listing, by auctioneer Mark Jenkinson and Son, states: “The property is in a very poor state of repair and has been extensively damaged by fire.”
