The Old Chapel in Gotherington
The Old Chapel in Gotherington was built in 1833 and was originally owned by the Countess of Huntingdon’s Trust.
Today the building is owned by The Old Chapel Community Project (Registered UK Charity No. 1179607), a charity set up in 2018 by villagers of Gotherington, who wanted to ensure that The Old Chapel would remain a place the community could use for years to come.
In July 2020 renovation to The Old Chapel began. This included replacing the roof and existing render, plus resolving past damp issues and giving the interior a fresh new look!
The latest photos can be viewed on the Fundraising page, together with thanks to our wonderful neighbours for sponsoring the new tiles, helping to raising an additional £4,000 which will enable us to complete more of the internal improvements before re-opening.
