The Old Hyde Chapel

The present Hyde Chapel was built in 1846.

The first chapel on the site was built in 1708. It was extended in 1767. No picture of the original chapel is known to exist, but when we visited the recent Beatrix Potter Exhibition, we were shown this picture of the extended chapel. It was demolished following the completion of the new chapel, but the site can be made out in the present graveyard.

A closer look at it can by found on Old Hyde.

Hello, Gerald! Lovely chapel. Interesting story: I used to supervise exchange students, and I took them to "Old Town San Diego" to see the place. They were not impressed. One of the gals said to me, "You have to understand, Chris, that a church in our town built in the 1700s is considered NEW!!" :-)

Apologies for not commenting a lot lately. . .I have been under quite a bit of stress that will hopefully resolve itself tomorrow (and is the subject of tomorrow's post). Thanks for understanding.

The image within an image is a nice touch. There seem to be a lot of chape/church post this weekend!
