Lady Chapel Restoration

Restoring our remarkable Lady Chapel and creating a valuable space benefitting local people.

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 beautiful decorative scheme includes wall paintings by Henry Charles Brewer RI, fine Charles Kempe stained glass, 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.

We plan to carry out the work in early summer 2022. The full cost is around £65K, and we need to find another £4K to reach our target.

Please join us in helping to bring this work to reality:
