(Formerly Listed as:
Chapel of Nunhead Cemetery
Anglican cemetery chapel, now deconsecrated. 1844. By Thomas
Little. Rock-faced stone with ashlar dressings.
PLAN: immediately inside the building, which is entered
through a square porte-cochere, there is a transverse bay
leading into the main hexagonal space of the chapel.
EXTERIOR: the impressive porte cochere has a ribbed vault , 4
very tall and slender pinnacles, and much fine stone detail in
the Decorated style. At each end of the transverse bay are
3-light windows with flowing tracery. The one other window
which can be seen (the others being hidden by ivy) has 2
lights and similar reticulated tracery.
Despite its current poor state, this building still makes a
dramatic statement, standing as it does at the head of the
avenue facing the main gates.
