St. Mary’s Church – Lady Chapel (Vision 2006)

Hadlow, Kent

This project included the re-ordering of the spaces which had been compromised by previous alterations. The Lady Chapel was cramped and used as a route from the nave to the north aisle. The solution provided new seating and kneelers to form a circular layout to maximise the use of the space and provide a peaceful setting away from the main nave of the church. The existing large wooden alter table was replaced with a purpose made small stone table to form a new for focus for the space.

I also designed a new glazed door with an etched motif to replace a dark internal door and provide a view of the nave from the west porch.

I am now in discussion with the PCC and the vicar on the re-ordering of the north aisle to provide refreshment, choir and crèche facilities and develop the historical links with the newly restored Hadlow Tower.
