Jenkin Chapel

Jenkin Chapel was constructed of the local gritstone in 1733. It was built in a vernacular style and has an external flight of steps leading to a gallery (a small tower with a saddleback roof was added in 1754–55). Originally dedicated to St. John the Baptist, it was first consecrated in 1894 and re-dedicated to St. John the Evangelist.

Famous quotes containing the word chapel:

    I never went near the Wellesley College chapel in my four years there, but I am still amazed at the amount of Christian charity that school stuck us all with, a kind of glazed politeness in the face of boredom and stupidity. Tolerance, in the worst sense of the word.... How marvelous it would have been to go to a women’s college that encouraged impoliteness, that rewarded aggression, that encouraged argument.
    Nora Ephron (b. 1941)
