A visit to the Weardale Museum includes entry to High House Chapel.
This beautiful chapel is not a Museum piece but the Church Council and Museum Trustees welcome groups who want to know more about the chapel as part of a museum visit.
We specialise in visits by groups with members who are mainly in their third age e.g. Historical Societies, Adult Education Classes, Church/Chapel and Christian Heritage groups, Holiday Fellowships, U3A, Age Concern, Probus, Ladies Circle, WI, etc.
“This is the country where
the fires of Methodism took hold,
fanned by an absentee Anglicanism.
There are many chapels in these parts,
many are early and handsome and Ireshopeburn is the best.”
