London’s Unseen Chapels: From the Notebooks of Canon Clarke, a Heritage Lottery funded project, will leaf through the pages of Canon Basil Fulford Clarke’s (1907-78) notebooks to explore some of the most unnoticed sites of Anglican worship in the metropolis. This will reveal the ways in which these unique foundations historically provided spiritual care to those from all gradations of society, and continue to do so successfully today. The project will bring awareness of the impact that chapels have had on the regional and national history of the United Kingdom, as well as investigate the various architectural forms that such institutions have taken.
The Cathedral and Church Buildings Division, Lambeth Palace Library, and the Church of England Record Centre have teamed up, thanks to the financial support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, to showcase their collections in a temporary exhibition which unmasks and brings to life the hidden world of London’s chapels.
The event on March 22nd is for anyone interested in the culture and heritage of london churches as well as those who have an interest in church architecture. The Notebooks of Canon Clarke will be on display; there will be a Lecture given by Dr Freeman as well as a presentation by the volunteers.
Please note that Lambeth Palace is a closed site, therefore you will not be admitted to the event if you have not booked a ticket.
