Octagon Chapel (Norwich)

The Octagon Chapel is an outstanding nonconformist chapel in the historic city of Norwich.

It is situated in Colegate, across the river, a hundred yards away from the The Old Meeting House, opened by the Congregationalists in 1693.

The Octagon Chapel was built for the Presbyterians in 1756, but switched to the Unitarians in 1820.

It has eight sides, and is fronted by a small courtyard with a graveyard at the rear.

John Wesley admired the Octagon, declaring that it was "the most elegant Meeting House in Europe".

Five Mayors of Norwich worshipped at the Octagon.
