Remote late 17th-century Baptist chapel

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.
