Church

Saint Seraphim's Chapel, Walsingham

Saint Seraphim's Chapel, Walsingham

Details

The Chapel has been open to visitors daily since 1967. Styled on the Byzantine model with icons, an icon screen, tower and onion dome, the Orthodox Christian Chapel until 2009 had an iconographer.

We are going through the development phase of a heritage lottery bid to enable us, with funding, to restore the building, a former railway station and platform. With funding in place our aim is to provide displays of icon and railway heritage with a community garden which is a work in progress.

The garden has wheelchair access and will be open in the Spring, on days when we have stewards there, or by request.
