1415 – St. Nicholas Chapel, King’s Lynn, Norfolk


The building shows the early development of the Perpendicular style, having been rebuilt c.1380-1415. The building is perfectly rectangular apart from the south porch, and largely built in brick rubble and rendered. Only the stone tower (c.1225) remains from the earlier churches, and showing a lower ground level; its lead spire was a replacement in 1869 by Sir George Gilbert Scott. Although now redundant it is still consecrated and has been in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust since 1992.
