The Little Chapel

Guernsey's Little Chapel is a real gem, tucked away in the grounds of Blanchelande Girls College and run by a charitable trust.  It dates from 1914, and was built by Brother Déodat as a replica of the church at Lourdes - but in miniature, and decorated with bits of broken pottery and sea shells!  It is possible to stand up inside the chapel - certainly for someone who is vertically challenged like me - but it starts to get very cosy when there are more than two people inside.  On this occasion there were several French visitors who were clearly making a pilgrimage to the chapel.













Quite a challenge photographically, as there certainly wasn't room in the chapel for a photographer and a tripod!
