Laughton Methodist Chapel

Laughton Methodist Chapel
Dating from 1826, the chapel was used as Sunday School until 1969. The second chapel adjacent to the first dates from 1927. A new Sunday School was added in 1975. The Primitive Methodist magazine of 1859 records an account by A Worsnop of the re-opening of the chapel after enlargement.


This was necessary because of a revival in the winter of 1857-8 and consent was obtained from WM Ingram Esq. On the north wall inside Laughton Methodist church is a white stone tablet with incised gold lettering commemorating a single World War 2 casualty.


Open 13-14th May   Saturday 10.30am - 4pm • Sunday 10.30am - 4pm

Hainton • St Mary

An estate church of Anglo-Saxon origins, rebuilt in the 13th and 14th centuries and sympathetically restored in the 19th century. The spire was suggested by Capability Brown when he redesigned the park. Inside, there is a “nationally important” series of monuments to the Heneage Family, from a brass of 1435 to a modern memorial of 1954, providing an illustrated history of monumental styles. They are unusual because of the time span for one family. Light refreshments available throughout the day.
