The basic structure of Whitby Chapel dates back to the 13th C.

It was converted from a house to a chapel in 1715.

There is a trap door in front of the pulpit which is said to have led to an escape route from the building when public feeling toward dissenting communities who upheld equality and freedom of thought brought hostile crowds.

This is an opportunity not to be missed, and it is not usually open to the public.
