This image shows an engineer in the process of examining the foundations of Wesley's Chapel. A few years earlier, much of the building structure of the Chapel had been found to be unsafe. The Chapel was closed and, with help of international donations, a major refurbishment programme was carried out. The Chapel re-opened on its 200th anniversary in November 1978, in the presence of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
