A licence was granted in 1331 to John de Broughton ‘for Divine service in his oratory at Broughton’. It is a rare example of a 14th century private chapel. The fixed stone altar slab supported on three solid brackets and the encaustic tiles on the floor are all of the original date.*



The chapel can be viewed through a squint in the corner of Queen Anne’s Room.

    Aren’t those stained glass windows just magnificent!

  3. The stained glass windows are superb :)

  4. I can’t remember which cathedral now.
    There’s one private prayer room located above the porch, where you have to squeeze through a very narrow stairwell in order to reach there.
    Maybe it’s Chichester?
    Or Chester?

      I do not know…

      I have been to Chester and I have not noticed a private prayer room…

      It was on my list to visit Chichester this year, but I think that may have slipped to next year now. When I visit I will let you know if the private prayer room you mention is there.
