"The churchyard at the Church of Peter and St Paul is depicted on the 2nd edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey County Series map.

The current church dates from 1753, but an earlier, probably medieval, church is documented as being on or near to the site, and it is possible that the churchyard dates back to this period as well"

Cherry Willingham Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was built in 1836. The builders paid attention to detail and made this little one-cell chapel decorative.

It is in red brick but has yellow brick trimmings and round headed windows.

The plaque above the door, now gone, was very large for the size of the chapel what did it say?

The building is well cared for now with its use as the Parish Council Office.
