Art exhibition during the King’s Lynn Festival was great. Various Concerts also a great draw. The church itself is very interesting with its wooden angels up in the roof. Well worth a visit if you are in King’s Lynn.

Really pleased to see how this chapel has been restored as my parents were married there in 1946. They also have lots of activities there, crafts, Halloween, photography exhibits, concerts etc. Really beautiful place to see, so much history.

This is a lovely building with carved wooden angels in the roof. The church has a long history and was once the site of the church court. There are tombstones in the floor and the name of the deceased is Robinson Crusoe.
