Historic High Street Church
High Street Methodist Church stands at the busiest part of the High Street. A beautiful and historic structure, High Street Methodist Church is worth a visit. Inside the mammoth pulpit adorned with scenes from the book of Revelation is worth the visit. The pulpit is reached by one of two staircases and has seating for 2-3 people plus the preacher at the top.
On the side of the pulpit is a plaque commemorating the preaching of John Wesley's grandfather who spent time in a local jail for preaching too close to an Anglican church.
An interesting banner inherited from the Primitive Methodist tradition hangs from the impressive balcony.
Toward the front of the sanctuary is a small scale replica of Poole High Street Methodist Church. The church is often open on Fridays at lunchtime for tourists and a short service.
