Citadel House (formerly Stroud Octagonal Chapel)

Stroud chapel was built in 1762 (enlarged 1796) as a Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion chapel. It is the oldest surviving octagonal chapel built by the Methodist movement, though it has functioned as a Salvation Army citadel since 1879. John Wesley preached at 'The Round House' (between 1765 and 1790), as did General William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army.
