Roman Catholic Chapel of the Immaculate Conception & St Margaret, Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk - 26th September 2005

This chapel was built in 1836 of brick salvaged from cottages demolished on the estate, but which was originally rendered.  The east chapel, built of stone, was added later in 1862.

For some inexplicable reason the National Trust don't allow photography (even without flash) unless you make a special appointment outside normal visiting hours.  How convenient is that when you live several hours away?  An explanation of why would ease the sense of frustration, but the organisation seems very loath to explain.  As a member I feel I have a right to know.  One can only assume it is to try and boost their postcard sales - as a result I never buy any; they almost certainly wouldn't be of the subjects which interest me and they probably wouldn't let me publish copies here anyway.  The expensive guide books (and I nearly always buy one) are quite enough.

So sorry, no internal pictures of this little chapel.  Shame really.
