Englesea Brook Chapel & Museum is one of the four main Methodist Heritage sites, and the only one to focus on the 19th century working class revival known as Primitive Methodism. Popularly called 'the Ranters', through the chapels many became early leaders of the trade union movement, and the first working class MPs. Starting in Staffordshire, the movement spread rapidly among potters, miners, fishermen and farm workers across Britain, and they took their beliefs with them all over the world.
Englesea Brook Chapel & Museum looks forward to welcoming old and new friends to the following event:
10.30am till 3.30pm Local heroes Event
