I became aware of the musuem and chapel from Facebook and took the opportunity to visit whilst in Durham visiting family. It was a beautiful drive to get there. I was last there in the 1980s on a school trip. I really enjoyed spending an hour looking at the exhibits (especially the rag rugs that my grandma used to make) and reading about how Methodism came to the dales. I look forward to visiting again when the chapel space is finished.

With covid affecting all sorts of places these days. we were unable to visit the Weardale Museum itself as so many of the volunteers are elderly and, therefore, at risk. But, we were able - socially-distanced, of course - to look around the attached chapel which, until literally a year ago, was the oldest continually-attended Methodist chapel in England (potential plans are afoot to resume). If, like me, you have a passion for interesting churches, then this is one to see. If it lacks the age, wall-monuments and nooks and crannies of so many ancient Anglican churches, it more than makes up for that in the immense power and drive emanating from the commanding pulpit which was, and is, the very centre of the Methodist ministry, with the attendant pews like so many sheep arranged and eager to listen to the word of the minister. An arresting chapel, and one listed in Simon Jenkins' 1000. Worthwhile if in Co Durham.

Visited as part of a team building day with work.

Excellent presentation from the staff followed by a visit to the exceptional little museum in the attached manse. Certainly know more about Methodism now than I once did and also a fact which might come in handy for where I currently work.

Would love to go back with family.

We spent a couple of hours here it was so interesting to be able to see and touch some of the things that were commonplace in homes in the area not too many years in the past, some I could remember my childhood home having, such as the huge set of drawers with glass cabinet on top, upstairs and down is filled with local items and information and I thought the tribute to fallen soldiers was lovely. My sister and I were able to donate a teapot that had been in the family for over 100 years and are glad that it will be there for the future for people to see and admire. The chapel next door is so peaceful and interesting and it's good that you are able to take your time to look round upstairs and down, finally there is a long and lovely walk behind the museum to see and enjoy some of the countryside around. A lovely trip in all and well worth the £3 entrance fee.

I am an American who has researched my genealogy, trying to learn more about my English ancestors for many years. I've discovered many far-flung relatives in the US, also descending from John Atkinson and Martha Miller of Stanhope, England. Amazingly, all of us had the same family lore: that our great great grandfather played with a band that performed in the Crystal Palace. But we never got the whole story about who they were and how and why we ended up in America. Until we connected with Ken Heatherington of the Weardale Museum. He had all the intertwined names of my ancestors, their stories and relationships. I can't say how much I appreciate the Weardale Museum helping us solve ancestral mysteries and giving faces and personalities to our ancestors who, before this, were only names on a chart.

An interesting local museum with a good range of interesting material regarding life in the area during the early mining and industrial period. Chapel is vast and very interesting. Much more decorated than usual for a Methodist Chapel. Very kind and helpful volunteer staff

Thank you very much for your review Madalyn it is much appreciated. For such a small village the chapel is indeed vast. At the height of the lead-mining boom there was a much bigger population and in 1851 when a religious census was carried out nationwide it was recorded that over 900 people attended on 31st March, with 600 at the afternoon service. The highly decorated entertainments organ originated from Sunderland but was removed after a terrible accident their where 183 children died. Apart from the fretwork on the pulpit and the marble painted columns we like to think that the chapel is quite plain. Our venture next door in the Museum is completely volunteer run and our staff will be please to read your kind comments.

A great little gem of a museum. Bargain at £3 per adult. The place is tiny but stuffed with so many interesting items I could have spent all day there looking through the photo albums. There is internet access for searches and touch screen information points to keep children engaged . Also a mouse hunt for younger children (and adults too!).
The visit was made extra interesting due to the enthusiasm of Liz the volunteer who showed us around, she was a wealth of fascinating facts and stories. Go and support this lovely place,

Thank you very much for your comments which we hope will bring others to our door. We don't actually have internet access - our search facility for family history and for our 'Virtual Museum' screen run from internal databases. I'll tell our volunteer, Liz, how much you appreciated her help.

Little in the size of the building but not in the amount of information available! Lots of family history resources, info about the lead mining in the area, Wesleyism & general everyday life. You can also have a lot at the adjoining Chapel.
Knowledgeable & helpful staff.

The museum is a truly wonderful place to learn about life in the valley, going back to mining times and old trades etc. The volunteers running the museum are very welcoming and helpful, and can give some really interesting stories about some of the artifacts etc. The chapel is also very interesting and is well worth including during the visit.

A great little museum but you must check out the opening times as these can vary from season to season.

Hi Stu, Thank you for your review. As a volunteer run museum we are dependent on people giving their time to help run the museum. We do however recognise our commitment to open for visitors at the times we advertise so that we do not disappoint those who have made the effort to call. Occasionally people pick up an old piece of literature with different timings. We are open between May 1 and October 31st Wednesday - Sunday, 1.30-4.30pm. Additionally we are open at Easter, Bank Holidays and for July and August every afternoon.
