Chapel of St John the Baptist, Matlock

Chapel of St John the Baptist, Matlock. by Budby, on Flickr

Just had to share this image of a small chapel of ease from 1897. The architect is Sir Guy Dawber, one of those which John Betjeman credits as part of the "thin stream of life and vigorous influence for the good in English architecture for the last 50 years [1883-1933]." More on Betjeman soon, but I couldn't pass up sharing this building.

The chapel is no longer in use and owned by Friends of Friendless Churches.
