Memorial secrets in a secluded chapel

Striking memorials grace this fascinating rural chapel - which is all that remains of a fourteenth-century church.

The earliest, a wall memorial from the 1620s, shows a kneeling John Evelyn I and his wife wearing grand Stuart fashions, with their 11 children in a line below. Perhaps the most imposing memorial is Robert Pierrepoint's - an angel supports his life-sized marble figure.

The chapel stands alone in excellent walking country - a great place to take a break.
