Wednesday 8th August and we visited Loughwood Meeting House, a National Trust property. It is situated 4 miles west of Axminster, off the Axminster to Honiton Road (A35). It is slightly off the beaten track, there is a small National Trust sign on the main...More

When we found this we were quite surprised at how insignificant it actually is. Very small , sitting alongside a narrow Devon lane with issues for parking or passing. We wouldn't have bothered coming if we had realised how little there was to see.

Not very well signposted. Blink and you miss the NT plaque to the lane.Apart from that there is a small carpark in front. The meeting house itself is full of character. We enjoy the history surrounding a site.

Loughwood meeting house is a little historic gem, an old Quaker National Trust owned chapel, unmanned and down the end of a tiny road, but with a little area to park/turn round. Definitely an interesting place to stop and look round, even if they didn't...More

This meeting house is well worth a visit, interesting and full of history built circa 1650 for non-conformist to worship in a dangerous time. Just off the A35 near Axminister in a peaceful spot.

Difficult to find, which perhaps was the point of it! The level of interest in this building depends on your depth of historical and social knowledge. On the face of it,it's an old church in the depths of the countryside. But it clearly has an...More
