SANFORD CHAPEL

Sanford chapel

 

The foundation stone of the Sanford memorial chapel and new vestry were laid in June 1869 by Mr. Sanford's grandson. The work was substantial, so much so that the church had to be closed during the period of the work. Services were then held in the orangery of Nynehead Court and on completion of the work there was a celebratory service. With the building of the mortuary chapel and the extension in which the Organ now stands it was said that nothing of importance was sacrificed except a three light window in the short transeptal chapel and two small windows in the north wall of the chancel. John Sanford put the two large rose windows in place.
