Epworth Old Rectory

Epworth Old Rectory (built 1709) will transport you back to the early 18th century. This is the home where Samuel Wesley (Rector of Epworth) & his wife brought up their family. Their remarkable sons, John & Charles Wesley went on to develop the Methodist movement. Here, at the Old Rectory, you will see their childhood home. This house brings 18th century history alive and is a place where you can learn about the huge influence the Wesleys had on British religious, cultural & social life.
