A place to nurture the spirit

The Heritage at the Heart of Graylingwell project will convert Graylingwell Chapel to a new use as a vibrant community resource. We will conserve and enhance this unique listed building by restoring the building while reconfiguring the space to be flexible and welcoming. 

At the heart of our project is the vision to complement the Chapel’s unique layout and original purpose as an asylum church with new structures that enhance the architecture. Using the building and the surrounding site, we will tell the fascinating story of Graylingwell Hospital through a varied activity programme, exhibitions and interactives.
