New Chapels

Chapel Refurbishments

1. Ebenezer Chapel, Pick Hill, Horam, Sussex

Year 2002:  Car park surface around the chapel was seriously deteriorating.  It was therefore excavated, a geotextile membrane laid, a sub-base provided, necessary drainage channels inserted and overlaid with bitumen macadam.


2. Providence Chapel, Staplehurst, Kent

Year 2014:  Typical Kent weather boarded property which had been re-roofed after the last war but only patched up since.  So the need was for the chapel to be re-roofed followed by exterior re-painting.


3. Bethesda Chapel, Southampton

Year 2010:  Interior of chapel, entrance hall and vestries redecorated, replaced internal doors, replaced lead on flat roof and above front doors and redecorated externally.  Year 2011:  Rendered and painted boundary wall.


4. Clifton Strict Baptist Chapel

Year 2013:  Replacement of chapel windows (hardwood) and schoolroom windows (uPVC) and painting of soffit, doors and surrounds.  A case like this shows just how much planning is required – meeting with Trustees, contact Local Authority, obtain drawings and quotations, apply for planning consent, arrange finances and oversee the work, etc.


5. Hanover Chapel, Tunbridge Wells

Year 2009:  Dealing with damp problems, remove panelling in Sunday School and erect inner stud walls and false ceiling, electrics and redecorate; treat exterior brickwork of chapel and redecorate.
