The Church of England and the Methodists have always been strong in the village.

​

The Parish Church, St Mary’s, was built on Town Street in the original heart of the village of Hickling.

​

The Wesleyan Methodists first built a chapel at Dove’s Corner and later moved to a bigger Chapel on The Green (one of the Voices at least talks about this chapel).

​

The Primitive Methodists built their first chapel in Stubb Road (now a private residence called Old Chapel Cottage) and moved to the present site on Heath Road.  The present building replaced an earlier one on the same site that was damaged in a storm.

​

Memories on these pages relate to both denominations and to the social life that took place in the Church Rooms opposite the village school.
