£2.7m regeneration project at St Nicholas’ Chapel, Kings Lynn

The 600 year old wooden roof angels at St Nicholas Chapel, Kings Lynn are thought to have survived the destruction of the Reformation unlike other carved and painted images in churches which were destroyed.

Now, experts are being given the chance to see the life size angels close up, as part of a a £2.7m regeneration project by The Churches Conservation Trust. It aims to bring the chapel back into use as a cultural centre for events, concerts, fairs and exhibitions. It is due to be completed by May, and will re-open in late summer 2015. The project has been supported by a number of key donors, including the Heritage Lottery Fund, The Garfield Weston Foundation, King’s Lynn Preservation Trust and The Green Energy Trust, Scottish Power.
