Newbiggin in Teesdale
Land purchased in 1759 by three of John Wesley’s itinerant preachers and four local lead miners "whereupon to erect and build a meeting house for the use of the society in the exercise of their religious worship." It was opened in 1760, and enlarged in 1860 (the footprint of the building seen today) and renovated in 1987. Contains a pulpit from which John Wesley is believed to have preached on several occasions, with displays relating to Wesleyan and Primitive Methodism in Teesdale and further afield.
