An opportunity to explore the earliest dissenting chapel in Warrington, part of the 1662 ejection, and the displays of local people.

There were monuments to pupils of Warrington Academy and prominent families of the chapel including the Gaskells, Aitkins and Monks.

There were also displays featuring the lives of Joseph Priestley, who was ordained in the chapel; Anna Letitia Barbould, an 18th century poet; and novelist Rev Pearall Phillip Carpenter, an agitator for social reform.  Plus there was a lectern in memory of John Howard, the prison reformer, who attended Cairo Street on his many visits to Warrington.

Visitors could sit in the garden which is a quiet oasis in the town centre.
