Clumber Park 5/7

The chapel at Clumber Park is no ordinary country house chapel, rather it is an independent building of the size and proportions of a large parish church, and one of considerable elaboration which was raised and furnished at prodigious expense by the 7th. Duke of Newcastle.

I really like the color detailing on this chapel - delightful!
Brian Walbey: It's a really fine looking church, I had to work hard to get colour in this, it was a really full picture.

C'est un très bel endroit.
Brian Walbey: Yes and we had it almost to ourselves.
I see what you mean, Brian. I would NOT call that a "chapel."
Brian Walbey: Strangely it doesn't seem as big inside as it looks from the outside.

This building makes a statement, Brian
Brian Walbey: Strangely it doesn't seem as big inside as it looks from the outside. I'm posting the inside over the weekend.

It looks to be an incredibly grand structure
Brian Walbey: It is but strangely it doesn't seem as big inside as it looks from the outside.

What some interesting coloured stonework on the chapel. I always wonder why the Dukes of Norfolk, Devonshire, Edinburgh, Newcastle etc, never actually live in the location given by their title.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine looking building with the bright sun shining on it, sadly it wasn't shining on this day! I've never been able to work out quite why Dukes always seem to come from other oarts of the country than where they live, ie.the Duke of Norfolk down your way at Arundel.
Imagine having the money to build this!
Brian Walbey: Indeed and no doubt earned on the back of the ordinary guy in the street.

Yes, this chgapel looks very special - a fine location!

A quiet place, even if the church looks a little disturbing
Brian Walbey: As it was a school day and not very nice weather we had the place almost to ourselves. It is certainly a rather unusual looking church.
It's an interesting construction.

I love the sandstone trim.
Brian Walbey: That's one of the things that makes it stand out more than some churches.

It is seriously elegant, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a very impressive church altogether.
