The Chapel

The chapel lies below the main entrance stairway. In the middle ages it could only be entered from the outside through a small door to the left of the stairs. The chapel consists of a small nave set at right angles to the chancel, and was partly restored by John Dobson in 1848. It is now entered from within the keep by a doorway cut through the medieval masonry.

    Not unlike a dungeon in a way. Probably shouldn’t be thinking like that.

      You gotta love (or hate) the quirkiness of Wordpress ;-)

      I am glad I took the time to rephotograph these images when I realised the original photos I took were on the wrong setting!!

      My photographs represent what I saw on the day.

    No doubt about it, these shots are wonderful. I was in here in the last few years on a Heritage Open doors weekend & the results I have are second rate to this. Well done.
