The oldest Methodist chapel in Lincolnshire. Robert Carr Brackenbury, the squire of Raithby and friend and fellow worker of John Wesley, built this chapel over his stables at Raithby Hall. It was opened by Wesley in July 1779. It now belongs to the present owner of Raithby Hall. The Georgian interior has been preserved.
