Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II leaving Wesley's Chapel, 1978
Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II leaving Wesley's Chapel after the re-opening ceremony at the Chapel in November 1978. Behind Her Majesty follow local dignitaries and her lady-in-waiting.
The Chapel had undergone a comprehensive scheme of restoration between 1972 and 1978, following severe structural issues with the foundations, the roof and the south gallery. The re-opening ceremony took place two hundred years to the day of the Chapel opening in November 1778.
