The Chapel was created from a domestic farm building into a non-conformist meeting house in the middle of the 17th century. Its beautifully preserved interior offers visitors a rare insight into the history of dissenting worship in Suffolk in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Grade II * listed building offers a spectacular setting for performances and events, with a programme of music, poetry, exhibitions and new commissions. The Chapel is available for weddings, baptisms, and blessings, and can be hired for meetings and location filming. Walpole Old Chapel is owned by the Historic Chapels Trust and cared for by the Friends of Walpole Old Chapel, preserving its heritage and traditions as a meeting place for the widest expression of community life.
