Bishop Asbury Cottage (grid reference SP032939) is the boyhood home of Francis Asbury, the first American Methodist Bishop, in Great Barr, England[1].

Now a grade II listed museum, the 18th century cottage is furnished in period style, with memorabilia and information relating to Asbury's life in West Bromwich and Great Barr in England and later in the United States. It also has displays about the rise of Methodism in the surrounding Black Country, and John Wesley's life and times, and visits to the local area[1].
