VIDEO: Fresh look at King’s Lynn chapel

Have your say

Visitors to Lynn’s St Nicholas Chapel will be able to see its history in a new way from today.

A series of new interactive displays and activities has been installed and are due to go on display for the first time this morning.

The project, which has been created by the Norwich-based Ugly Studies, includes several mirror carts which can be used to take a closer look at the chapel’s wooden roof angels and which are shown in our video.

Other highlights include video displays showing the restoration and return of the chapel’s bells and a display on the history of the religious or consistory court, which is still located in the north-west corner of the building.

It is also hoped to install a dressing up box in that area of the chapel for visitors to try out the costumes of the past. It is hoped that will be in place in the next couple of weeks.

Officials from the Churches Conservation Trust, which led the recent £2.7 million refurbishment of the chapel, hope the new work will make the building’s history more accessible to the public and encourage even more visitors to take a look.
