St Nicholas Chapel –
The stunning St Nicholas Chapel in Kings Lynn, Norfolk has been transformed in a £2.7m regeneration project supported by Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
St Nicholas’ Chapel (SNC) is the Largest Chapel of Ease in England. Significant fund-raising from the Churches Conservation Trust and Friends of St. Nicholas Chapel augmented the grant from the HLF allowing vital restoration work to be possible.
Clarkson Alliance was chosen to oversee the extensive conservation and repair work including re-roofing complete with the installation of PV solar panels. The scope of the project also includes masonry repairs, refurbishing 20 chandeliers, a new chamber floor and installation of new toilets and a kitchen area so that the chapel can provide a historic, functional and flexible space for education, events and other activities as well as inspiring other community projects in East Anglia.
We are driven by delivering successful outcomes in all our projects. Unveiling the project on time enabled St Nicholas’ Chapel to be open for Open Doors weekend, a national celebration of Heritage where many notable sites are open to the public.

We have had confidence in how Clarkson Alliance managed the team and project throughout. They’ve been approachable and knowledgeable whilst also delivering the project on time.Isabel Assaly
