Graylingwell Chapel is a beautiful chapel that is Grade II listed and in desperate need of repair.
This year Graylingwell Chapel will become one of the community buildings that Chichester Community Development Trust looks after on behalf of the community. CCDT, with its partners, will redevelop, refurbish and rejuvenate Graylingwell Chapel into a warm, inviting, multi-purpose space that will serve the community both at Graylingwell Park and Chichester for decades to come.
This presents a rare opportunity to develop a new vision for Graylingwell Chapel; one that builds on the chapel’s character and heritage, fulfils the needs of the community and secures the chapel’s future.
Clare de Bathe, Trust Director,
“Graylingwell Chapel will play an essential role in our community here. It is part of the identity and history of the area and the success of this project will impact on the sense of community for people living locally and have a positive impact on the local economy.”
So far, with grants from Heritage Lottery Fund and Architectural Heritage Fund, we have consulted the local community and potential partners, hired an architect and project organiser and we are heading towards a big application for funds of £1 million +.
