Who is Involved?
This project is being delivered through a partnership between the national and local custodians of the Chapel: the Historic Chapels Trust (HCT), with the support of the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) and the Friends of Walpole Old Chapel.
When will it start?
We’ve already started. We had secured sufficient funding to enable the HCT with the Friends to appoint architects Ptolemy Dean, who are now developing the project specification. We’ll share more news following their research and investigations on site before the end of the year. Look for project updates on our News page.
How much will it cost?
It could be over £200,000. We don’t know the exact figure needed yet, as it will depend on the state of the timbers when revealed, and how much restoration work is needed. But we know we have a major fundraising campaign ahead to raise the money for this essential conservation work and repairs.
