The Museum of Methodism RefurbishmentPrint Case Study



Value: £557,000
Duration: 18 Weeks
Quantity Surveyor: Davis Langdon
Architect: John McAslan & Partners

We have recently completed the redevelopment of a permanent exhibition at the Museum of Methodism, which is housed in the Crypt of Wesley’s Chapel, in City Road, London.  The Grade I listed Chapel’s site is a complex of Georgian and Victorian buildings. John Wesley’s chapel, his house and the Museum of Methodism are all open to visitors. Since 1984, the Crypt of Wesley’s Chapel has housed the Museum of Methodism.  The main aim of the project has been to reinstate the exhibition area in the Crypt of the Chapel, which over recent years has been allocated for different uses. The exhibition space was initially subject to a complete strip-out then remodelled and refurbished to provide new and updated display and visitor areas. The exhibition areas feature bespoke display cases, feature lighting and interactive visitor interfaces. 

A second phase of works has involved the structural alteration and widening of the existing stone steps leading down to the crypt and the creation of a new entrance from the gardens into the exhibition.  In order to facilitate these works careful hand excavation of the area was required in conjunction with a team of archaeologists to ensure that buried human remains could be identified and reinterred.
