Inside Odda's Chapel, Deerhurst

Recent Photograph of Inside Odda's Chapel (Deerhurst)

This space was originally the Chancel of the Chapel. The division into 2 floors is likely to be of Tudor origin, possibly contemporary with the 16th century windows, when it was used as part of the living accomodation in Abbot's Court. The outer part of this wall is black-and-white timbered.

The small amount of masonry visible just above the floorboards is a fireplace. A guide book of 1900 describing the chapel at that time says there was access to the second floor by a ladder - obviously removed now for health and safety reasons!
