A former art gallery has been put up for sale after failing to cover running costs when grant funding ran out.

The Yare Gallery in Great Yarmouth opened in 2021 following the collapse of the Norfolk Nelson Museum, which shut in 2019.

Grant funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the government’s Culture Recovery Fund ran out in 2023.

The Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust, which owns the building, says it cannot afford to keep the premises mothballed.

The property, 26 South Quay, is a Grade II listed building and is being marketed at just under £300,000 with freehold tenure.

Bernard Williamson, the chairman of the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust, said the building was purchased and restored in the early 2000s to create the Norfolk Nelson Museum, marking the bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar.
