Things to see & do
Discover what's inside
Built in 1701 to look like a barn there are no records of what the chapel was exactly like inside. The interior would have been plain and unfurnished. The present decor is typical of the 1840s when the chapel was refurbished.
Explore the graveyard
There are many interesting graves in the small graveyard, including that of John Dowse who was minister for many years in the early 20th century and wrote the first history of the chapel.
Step into the outdoor baptistry
The chapel has an outdoor baptistry - here believers were baptised by full immersion, the water taken from a nearby dyke.
