Chapel of the Month – August 2014

George’s Meeting House on Exeter’s South Street was built as a Unitarian chapel in 1760, the year in which George III acceded to the throne. According to Allan Brockett, “it was named George’s Chapel in remembrance of the benefits that English Protestantism, and the Dissenters in particular, had gained from the Hannoverian Succession”.

The building is now a J D Wetherspoon’s pub but thankfully most of its interior has survived the conversion and a considerable amount of its character and charm remains.

You can read more about George’s Meeting House on the Exeter Memories website.
