Old Church of the Holy Trinity at Fleet, Dorset - 1979 & 8th October 2006

I discovered this delightful chapel during a long walk in 1979.  I spent a year of my life in Weymouth for industrial placement from university; long walks at the weekend were an enjoyable way to while away the time.

The chapel is in fact the chancel of a larger church that was destroyed by a disastrous storm and flood which washed over the nearby Chesil Beach on 23rd November 1824.  A new church was built to replace it, but the chancel was retained as a small chapel.

The chapel is the tiny building in this photograph. What a spectacular sky!

I visited the church again in 2006.  Here is a view of the building from the small church yard from the north east.

The final view is taken from the south west, showing the west wall, door and buttresses built where the original chancel arch would have been.
