How lovely to see this beautiful old building, one of the oldest in Barnstable being used again and enabling people to see the interior once again if you love history or old buildings this is a must visit.

This chapel is very old. For many years it was left untouched but now it's a 'must see' venue. There are art displays and historical info inside.

Regularly visit St Anne's for music events, from local acoustic sessions to national artists. You will enjoy a wonderful setting with superb acoustics. An experience not to be missed.
