A stunning Tudor chapel with windows fit for a king

This delightful early sixteenth-century chapel stands in wooded countryside near a Georgian manor. A towerless, pinnacled box made from pale gold ironstone, it looks like a miniature King's College Chapel, Cambridge.

The impressive interior was refurbished around 1744 and has changed little since. The walls are wood-panelled and the pews elegantly carved. But its most spectacular treasure is its stained glass, thought to be by Gaylon Hone, Henry VIII's glazier.
