St Peter’s Lady Chapel is a unique collection of accomplished early 20th century decorative art. Rededicated as a War Memorial in 1921, the Chapel’s is home to wall paintings by Henry Charles Brewer RI, fine Charles Kempe stained glass, work by Leonard Shuffrey, and, just outside the Chapel, a painting by notable Pre-Raphaelite, Edward Arthur Fellowes Prynne.
We are marking the Chapel’s rededication centenary by undertaking a full restoration and upgrade. Key work includes restoring the wall painting, windows and floor, repairing and painting the walls and conserving the painted ceiling. The project will preserve the Chapel’s remarkable heritage and provide a venue for activities benefitting a wide variety of local people.
Work has now started on the conservation which will conclude in September. A major community heritage weekend, Angels in Ealing will launch on 1st and 2nd October. Do join us!
The project will cost £65K, and we still have £3K to find. Please join us in helping to bring this work to reality.
