John Bunyan Museum & Library
Bunyan Meeting Free Church
John Bunyan became the minister of the church following his release from prison in 1672. He remained until his death in 1688. The present building was opened in 1850.
Scenes from The Pilgrim’s Progress are depicted on the magnificent bronze entrance doors and in some of the finest samples of 20th and 21st century stained glass windows. This beautiful building, steeped in Christian history, is today a living centre of Christian worship and service to the community.
Although John Bunyan is best known as the author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, he wrote some sixty books and pamphlets in all. Many of these are on display in the library section of the museum, together with over 200 foreign editions of The Pilgrim’s Progress.
