  • I bought the chapel and had it converted into a 2 bedroom cottage with plans drawn up by award winning architect Richard Jaques. I lived here with my labrador Dennis until i met and married my husband and lived with him in Hampshire. The cottage was always a lovely home. We kept many of the original features including the wall lamps and the street light. We sold the cottage in 2009
