Clovelly Methodist Chapel

The chapel no longer has a regular congregation, but has a ministry as a house of prayer for the many visitors to the delightful village of Clovelly. The village is privately-owned (by the same family since 1738) and admission charges apply. See

Clovelly is world-famous for its cobbled, traffic-free, high street winding down a 400'/120m high North Devon cliff, past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port. 

Also renowned for its donkeys, which traditionally carry goods up the hill; sledges bring things down. There are links with Charles Kingsley, Turner, Dickens and the Spanish Armada.

Part of the entrance fee is to care for the village and keep it in the style of the mid-nineteenth century, which involves much quality maintenance using traditional materials and craftsmanship.
