Bristol - John Wesley Chapel

I came up to bath on the Thursday so by Saturday I was a bit bored of Bath and paying entrance fees and hoped to find something cheap and cheerful. The High street was nothing particularly special but walking through the town centre I spotted the John Wesley Chapel and had to look around.

"The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world (originally built in 1739) and the cradle of the early Methodist movement.
It was built and used by John Wesley and the early Methodists as a meeting and preaching place and the centre for helping and educating the needy members of the community.
The chapel itself is on the ground floor (where there is also a shop) and is accessible from either the Broadmead or Horsefair courtyards. Upstairs, are the Preachers’ Rooms where the MLA accredited museum is located. This contains a unique collection of papers and artifacts and tells the story of John and Charles Wesley and their life and work in Bristol.." extract accessed 23/04/2012 from http://www.newroombristol.org.uk/Home
