Built in a time of dissent and persecution, this unique secluded chapel was designed to look like a farmyard barn in order to avoid being discovered. Built in 1701 and refurbished in 1840, it has a modest interior and a rare open air baptistry in its grounds.
If you would like to explore the interior of Monksthorpe Chapel, you can collect the key from the tea-room at Gunby Hall and Gardens from February till October daily from 11am. You will need to pay a £20 fully refundable cash deposit. Please return the key before 4.30pm. Contact Gunby Hall and Gardens on 01754 890102 for more information.
The exterior of Monksthorpe Chapel and its grounds can be visited without prior arrangement and are accessible every day throughout the year.
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
