This is a piece of amazing history painted by Turner but spoilt by the appalling detritus in the river. What sort of people throw so much into the town's most attractive feature?

I discovered this place by pure accident, it's a little off the beaten track. There was a flower festival on, and the little chapel was a hidden delight

The surroundings of the Chapel are the responsibility of the council. The interior is fascinating and all our reviews are enthusiastic. Please don't judge the chapel by things of our control.
