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.

“Graylingwell Chapel will play an essential role in our community here. It is part of the identity and history of the area and the success of this project will impact on the sense of community for people living locally and have a positive impact on the local economy.” – Clare de Bathe, CCDT Trust Director
