Wellington College Chapel

Hello

Welcome.

How is your day going?

We've popped inside Wellington College chapel.  Watch out for the maintenance equipment piled up by the stained glass windows as you go in and it's rather dark as well.




Built in 1863, the neo-Gothic chapel designed by George Gilbert Scott looks impressive with the painted ceiling and stained glass windows.  Two new ones were commissioned in 2013 to mark the 150th anniversary which looked intriguing but were obscured by equipment.





The poor old camera struggled a bit, so not many photos for you I'm afraid.







The chapel is an integral part of college life as well as the local community.

  1. I love stained glass windows. Great art and they give interesting light - or shadows... There is a rose window too... I have seen that of Chartres! Have a lovely evening!

    1. The traditional stained glass windows are over the altar but the camera couldn't manage the contrast. It's a shame as there are a few more of them too.

    1. They are very detailed aren't they, even the new ones. You might just be able to make out the patterns in the white circles.
