Epworth, Kilham Memorial Methodist Chapel
Alexander Kilham (1762-1798) was born in Epworth, son of a linen weaver, and achieved fame as founder of the Methodist New Connexion.
This branch of the church joined others to form the United Methodist Church in 1907 which in turn became part of the one Methodist Church in 1932.
This chapel in High Street, opposite the Wesley Memorial Methodist Church, was built as a memorial to Kilham in 1860. It was converted for use as Epworth's Youth Centre in 1944.
The building is Grade II listed.
