ABOUT LOSTWITHIEL METHODIST CHURCH
The origins of Taprell House are uncertain but it would appear to date back to the mid 16th Century (1550) or the early 17th Century.
The Lostwithiel branch of the Taprell family died out by the mid 18th Century and Taprell House was acquired by the Edgcumbe family of Mount Edgcumbe near Plymouth. After extensive alterations, the building became known as Edgcumbe House in 1742. By the end of the 19th Century the front of the building had become a shop and the rear gradually fell into disrepair.
The council bought the building in 1934. Major restoration work began in 1991 and Taprell House now houses a branch of the County Library, an exhibition gallery and Lostwithiel Methodist Church. We enjoy a relaxed style of fellowship with ‘Cafe church’ on alternate weeks. You are assured a warm welcome!!
