The building was originally a Wesleyan Chapel, built in 1779. John Wesley preached here in 28th June 1779. It was closed a chapel in 1936.

Since then the building has had several uses, a fisherman’s store, an artists studio in the 1950’s, an exhibition centre from 1987 and a second-hand bookshop and vegetarian cafe until 2006.

In 2007, the lower floor became a gift shop and cafe and the former gallery upstairs was converted into the Swell Cinema.
