Published by Wessex Archaeology
The Chapel is a small granite late fourteenth century single celled building. As a
building of its form and date it is a unique survival in the Channel Islands. The Chapel
contains the remains of medieval wall paintings depicting the Last Supper and
possibly Christ washing the feet of the Apostles. These constitute one of the two
substantial remaining examples of medieval wall painting in Guernsey, the other being
in the Castel Parish Church.
The Guernsey Council of Churches restored the Site during the 1970s as a Chapel of
Unity. This work included the installation of under floor heating, lighting and the
reconstruction of a bellcote and replacement roof covering. Damp has been a
continuing problem and there is now widespread concern about the condition of the
building and the wall paintings.
