Wesley Centre, Kingswood School

John Wesley founded Kingswood School in 1748. Originally in Bristol, it outgrew the original site and moved to its present location in Bath in 1852. The Wesley Centre traces the historical development of Kingswood School from its foundation in 1748 to the present day. The archive has a wealth of information for both family and Wesley historians, and displays include Wesleyana, memorabilia and models.
