Chisbury Chapel

This building was originally built by the Lord of the Manor as a “chapel of ease” for himself and his tenants. It ceased to be a chapel after 1547, and for 300 years was used as a barn.

The manor house site stands inside an iron age enclosure known as Chisbury Rings. The chapel is now owned by English Heritage. Standing in the farmyard, it is open to the public at any reasonable time.

I recently visited a very similar building in Suffolk. St James’ Chapel near Ipswich also has a chequered history.
