    Default Shenstone's Chapel


    History

    Shenstone's Chapel is constructed witj roughcast brick, plain tile roofs. Gothic revival building in the form of a church with cylindrical west tower and 2-bay 'nave'. Tower has 3 pointed windows with cast iron frames, each side of the nave has a panelled and nail studded door with 4-centred arch, and a mural cupboard with acutely pointed arch and boarded door; full-height pointed eastern entrance with double door, nail studded and formerly half-glazed. Interior. Pointed arch to apsidal chamber within the tower. Erected in memory of William Shenstone who worked on the landscaping of the grounds during the 1750's and 60's

    Been meaning to pop in and take a look for a while now, it took a bit of searching in the wood but eventually found it, was quite supprised just how tidy it was. I first went to the top of the hill and there are some lovely views there, I have added a few at end of report. Wasn't the best day for photographing landscapes but i think they came out ok.

    on with the photos


























    A couple of photos showing the veiw from top of the hill







    thanks for looking
