This is a quick visit on the Shakespeare path but just quick because there isn't too much to see. If you miss it, you didn't miss anything really.

Apparently there is some threat to keeping this chapel open. But it is of such importance it must stay open to visitors. A great space, with excellent modern stained glass windows, and a medieval painting of doom on the walls. You can feel the history oozing out of it. Thank you for keeping it going.

Came across this whilst wandering around the town centre. Little chapel with remains of wall frescos. Good information on the history of the chapel and paintings. Very restful feel.

It is worth going inside this small chapel, in particular to see the medieval paintings which are being restored. There is information to read. No charge, but a donation would be appreciated to help with restoration. Next to the school house and the row of alms houses. I went with the guided Stratford Walking Tour, which was a great benefit.

Visited this as part of the Stratford walking tour. It's a lovely place to sit inside and rest your feet while the tour guide tells you about the history and it's surroundings. absorb the music and atmosphere.
