"Refuge for Non-Confirmists"

The cheerful and historic Loughwood Meeting House is set in to a hillside with splendid views of the surrounding Axe Valley. This chapel was constructed in the 17th Century and is one of the oldest surviving Baptist meeting houses. Although the construction of the chapel would have been illegal at the time of its completion, its secluded location shrouded in secrecy allowed it to survive despite the atmosphere of persecution which existed at that time. The chapel is still used twice a year by Kilmington Baptist Church and is open to visitors who wish to come here and pray or simply explore this largely unaltered historic site. Inside you will find a pine pulpit and box pews, a baptismal pool and a musicians gallery above the rest rooms which were constructed for devout Baptists who travelled great distances to pray at the meeting house.
