Postcard printed on paper

The mahogany pulpit at Wesley's Chapel dates to the 1770s, a gift from one of John Wesley's supporters.

Simple but elegant wooden stairs curve upward to the reading platform. Originally, the pulpit had three levels. It was cut down after raked seating was installed on the second floor level of the Chapel in the 1860s and the preacher (standing on the top level of the pulpit) could be seen more easily.

In front of the pulpit stands a Renaissance-style armchair with elaborate carving. This dates to the late 1800s.
