Grand Designs

Looking straight ahead you cannot miss the grand appearance of St John’s Methodist Church, which remains little-changed since its construction in 1868 to replace the smaller chapel (built in 1786).  The latter is still standing, just through the archway, left of the Methodist Church, and is the oldest surviving Methodist building in East Yorkshire.

The most notable change here is perhaps that the stone pillar (possibly the market cross) in the centre of the street in this image from 1905, is no longer there.

 

That’s the end of the trail! Why not visit the Wicstun Centre and find out more about the town?

Turn left and go straight on through the main street, all the way straight on at the mini roundabout and the Wicstun Centre is on the right-hand side of the street, opposite the parking bays.
