Epworth Old Rectory

1 Rectory Street
North Lincolnshire

Samuel Wesley, the Rector of Epworth, built the house in 1709 after fire had destroyed the earlier building from which his son, John was rescued as a 'brand plucked from the burning'.

Now an accredited museum, a major development project is being planned to restore the house to how it could have looked in 1716 and to build a new visitors centre.

We can provide catering for groups of more than 20 people, by prior arrangement.

Please add - Special events take place through the year, including Walks with Wesley in Epworth, Candlelit Tours, craft fair and concerts.
Activities for school groups are being developed - please contact the Old Rectory for further details.
