St John's Chapel

St John's Chapel

St John's Chapel was built in 1857 as a mortuary chapel for the extended graveyard and for local people. In the 1960s it was consecrated as a place of worship and until very recently services were held there regularly. Unfortunately the strange weather we had during 2018 resulted in some ground shifting and the walls cracking. However after expert investigation it seems that the movement has stabiliesed and needs no repairs to be safe.

It is a lovely chapel, quite small, but with some beautiful stained glass windows.

St John's, including the stone wall that surrounds the cemetery, is Grade II listed. See the entry on Historic England site at Historic England listing 1307533 >>
