Dr Christine Seal: April 2019
2019 Summer outing to North Yorkshire
Saturday 20th July
We shall be following in the steps of John Wesley, visiting places often featured in his travels.
10.30am — assemble at Osmotherley Methodist Chapel (DL6 3AA) for coffee and a brief talk on the chapel's history. To arrive, travel south on A19. The village is signposted 3 miles south of the Ingleby Arncliffe service area. Street parking is in short supply so please park before reaching the centre of the village and walk the remaining 100 yards or so to the cross. From there you will see the arch ahead which leads to the chapel.
We leave the village by retracing our route. Turn left just before reaching A19 and follow this road under it, with signs indicating Teesside. Proceed northwards for a mile or so and move into the outside lane when you see the brown sign indicating 'Mount Grace Priory ½ mile' (DL6 3JG). Please take care turning right into Mount Grace entrance as traffic moves at speed along A19. Meet in the car park here (cost £1). Entrance to the Priory and its grounds are free to members of either English Heritage or National Trust — if there are sufficient numbers a group ticket may be possible for non-members, otherwise the charge is £8.60 each, £7.70 concession. Cafe, toilets and shop are available. Make your own arrangements for lunch, either by using the cafe or picnic nearby. Those using the cafe are advised eat soon after arrival as it may be busy later.
We leave Mount Grace at 2.30pm. On reaching A19 turn LEFT and head south for a short distance before taking the slip road for A684. After passing under A19 turn right following the sign for Teesside. After about 3 miles take the A172 (for Stokesley) and follow this road a further 3 miles until reaching the left turn (Black Horse Lane) for Hutton Rudby, following the signs until reaching that village. Turn left just opposite the public house and the chapel is a short distance on the right (TS15 0DA). Street parking is available but, as in Osmotherley, please take care not to block drives or entrances to nearby houses. We shall hear about the past, present and future of this lively village chapel, visit the former Primitive Methodist chapel (now the parish church hall) and conclude the afternoon with a light tea and closing devotions.
