Mr Barry Brown from the chapel said: "To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the building of the present chapel, there will be guided tours about the history of the town and its people and also the Unitarian community which grew from the efforts of the people who lived there. Everyone is welcome to attend, this is not a commitment of several hours, you can wander at will, dip in and out and refreshments will be available in the schoolroom below the chapel.''
