The Chapel and Prayer

The Chapel is part of the mid-18th century west wing of the House and was originally intended to be a dining room.

In the 1870s it was radically altered with the floor being lowered and the entrance changed. It was redecorated in the pre-Raphaelite style and boasts impressive William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones designs. Today it continues to be used for occasional services, evensong and organ practice.

The Chapel is located up several stairs, and is unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users. 


Chapel Services

There are no planned services at present.

Lord of all life and power,
who through the mighty resurrection of your Son
overcame the old order of sin and death
to make all things new in him:
grant that we, being dead to sin
and alive to you in Jesus Christ,
may reign with him in glory;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit
be praise and honour, glory and might,
now and in all eternity.
