Malvern College Chapel, Great Malvern

Recent Photograph of Malvern College Chapel (Great Malvern)

The buildings of the public school (Malvern College) are typical Victorian, and bear much resemblance to Clifton College in Bristol. The chapel stands to the west conveniently sited before you get to reception and with an open door, so not asking permission in I went! The stone (Cotswold Honey Coloured Ashlar) contrasts sharply with the more typical grey stone of the rest. The chapel is a rather dull building by Sir Arthur Blomfield and built 1897-99. It is in a Tudor Perpendicular style with strangely flying buttresses to the low south aisle walls.
