St Nicholas’ Chapel’s Newly Renovated Bells Ringing for First time in 2 Years
The community in King’s Lynn, Norfolk are hearing the bells ring again in the newly renovated St Nicholas’ Chapel after £2.7m of works. The building is owned by Churches Conservation Trust who partnered with the Friends of St Nicholas’ Chapel group to preserve the 600-year-old building.
The large Chapel is famous for a number of distinctive features including its 22 carved angels on the roof and over 30 depictions of bible scenes in its stained glass windows.
The plan to rejuvenate St Nicholas’ Chapel is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund who Clarkson Alliance has worked on a number of restoration projects with. A major part of the project is the protection of the dilapidated roof, safeguarding the bells and protecting the angels as well as providing facilities to increase the Chapel’s appeal as an events venue.
