Cawston Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Cawston Wesleyan Methodist chapel

The Wesleyan Methodist chapel in Chapel Street, Cawston (NR10 4BG)  in 2022 is the home of  Resonant Strings.  It still carries its 1829 datestone.

In time the society joined the Wesleyan Reform Union and did not join the united Methodist  connexion in 1932.

The Wesleyan Reform Chapel closed in 2006. There is a fascinating set of photos and an account of attending in the 1950-1960s on

There’s even a reference to a harmonica band based in the chapel.

  • The Wesleyan Chapel in Cawston is our family home.
    My husband and I are luthiers and we live here with our almost grown up children. It was in derelict condition when we bought it. We have tried very much to restore this beautiful building respecting its history.
    My husband trained initially as a carpenter and has done much of the carpentry work himself, salvaging as much as he could of the original inside and reusing it wherever possible.
    It is a beautiful building inside and out.

  • Hello Christopher

    I’ve only just discovered this amazing group.
    I lived in Chapel Street Cawston in the 1960’s and was married in the Wesleyan Chapel.
    Next time I go back I’ll take a photo of the building and post on here.
    There were 3 Chapels in the village at one time. The Wesleyan Chapel has a link to Australia and a sad history relating to Mr. Howes who owned the land it was built on.
