This lovely stone building was erected during the 14th century; it is one of only two buildings in Britain to have a vaulted roof constructed entirely of stone.
The chapel having become rather ruinous following the Reformation and the dissolution of Abbotsbury Abbey, was restored c.1730 by Lady Ilchester.
Here is a view a little later in the day, this time taken from outside St Nicholas' Church.
This final view was obtained from a vantage point high above the chapel. The stretch of water, the Fleet, behind the shingle bank, Chesil Bank, runs down to the Portland Harbour, and the Isle of Portland in the distance.
