HODs – Inside Out – an invitation to walk around ChristChurch premises and see how they have evolved

September 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Part of the Lincolnshire HODs Festival 2022

Discover the story of how ChristChurch (then a Wesleyan Chapel) has evolved from the day it opened in 1841. Hear our magnificent Foster and Andrews organ being played, originally installed in June 1857.
Guides will be on hand to explain the changes with original photographs you can use to compare. The chapel is a large, Italianate building, it has a bold design, proudly proclaiming its purpose in the carved gable head, and it towers over the rest of the street. The south front and west side are faced in fine ashlar limestone, The chapel was originally built by Messrs Greasley and Stretton who obtained the stone from Parker’s quarry at Heydour.
