Oulton Chapel Open Day
Come and discover a stunning 18th century chapel hidden in Norfolk countryside. Bring a picnic and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this place.
This non-conformist Chapel was built between 1728-31 and is listed grade II*. The Chapel remained in use until 1970s and reopened again in 1991 after needed restoration was completed.
The Chapel is a beautiful example of an early non-conformist chapel, built of red brick with double curved “Flemish” gables. The chapel retains its original panelling, box pews and gallery. Some of the original forms (basic timber benches) used for Sunday School children are still in evidence around the Chapel and the site and bear witness to the large numbers of adults and children who attend the Chapel for Sunday services.
If you look carefully, a link with the past is provided by various cartoons and other graffiti drawn to the pews by its occupants.
