Yarm Octagonal Chapel

John Wesley was involved in the planning and construction of this chapel in 1763 and declared it as his 'favourite' chapel. He preached here 18 times including on his 72nd birthday in June 1774. It is the oldest Methodist octagonal chapel in continuous use as a place of Methodist worship since its construction.
