Tolpuddle Chapel is not a museum but a working church with an important role to play in upholding the witness of the Martyrs.

The chapel is open for visitors from Easter until October.  People are encouraged to explore the chapel and consider how their Christian faith was an inspiration to the Martyrs as they took their stand, and sustained them against the storm that followed.

If you would like to support the work of the chapel, your donations will be gratefully received.  picture of the dedication on the memorial gates

Tolpuddle Methodist Chapel is in a unique position in witnessing the Christian faith to the present age, by drawing on these stories from the past.

It must be clear to everyone who engages with the story that Loveless and his friends would still be fighting injustice in the 21st Century, just as they did in the 19th.
