As part of the Historic Chapels Trust, the Walpole Old Chapel is dependent on donations to care for this historically significant building.

We have a major fundraising campaign ahead of us. Our campaign to raise the money needed for the essential conservation and refurbishment to the external fabric of the Chapel is now underway. Find out more about Unwrapped 2022. The Friends of the Chapel are committed to protecting this vital strand of our local and national history. Please support our Emergency Campaign.

The exterior render of the building is failing. Incorrect materials have been used in repairs over the last 50 years. The cement-based render is liable to frequent cracking, which is letting rain water in. Unlike a traditional lime render, it does not allow the building to ‘breathe’, contributing to further deterioration and there is now a significant risk to the timber structure of the building. A survey in 2017 established that remedial works would never solve this problem, and replacement of the render is the only long-term solution to preserve the Chapel for the future.
