Black and white photograph of a fireplace inside one of the five closet-room extensions inside John Wesley's House.
Each of the five floors of Wesley's House has a small closet located in an extension. The extension is located at the back of the house and all the rooms in it - one per floor - are significantly smaller than the front rooms. This arrangement was quite typical of London town houses of the 1700 and early 1800s, and these small rooms were considered private. John Wesley had his prayer closet in the room off his bedroom on the first floor of the house.
