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.
