A photograph of John Wesley's Study just before refurbishment works in the early 1990s. Although historically inaccurate, the wood panelling in the house was stripped off many layers of paint in the 1930s and can be seen here in its bare state. The panelling and doors were later repainted in an off-white colour.

In front of the window stands John Wesley's reading or 'cockfighting' chair. For further information, please refer to the Online Collection.
