Saved in 1985 the chapel was bought and transformed into what you see today by the widow of a prominent captain of industry, together with her architect friend they set out to re-invigorate the property with great success.


They installed gothic panelling throughout as well as dividing the main hall into another bedroom, study area and shower room. Lastly they converted the vestry into a fully functioning kitchen.
