John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church, visited Walsingham in 1781. Subsequently construction of a meeting place started in 1793 and this was opened as the present chapel in 1794. It has been used for worship ever since and is the oldest Methodist Chapel in use in the East of England.
It remains largely as built and with its imposing pulpit, balcony and original pews gives a fascinating insight into the past and of the centuries after the reformation and before the Shrines were built in the 20th century.
On display are various artefacts and explanatory boards etc. After the close on Sunday we plan to have a themed musical Sunday service at 1430 for an hour to which all are invited.
