Hire the
Anglican Chapel

Overview

The Grade II listed Anglian Chapel was built in 1847 of Hartshill stone in a Norman style.

The chapel has undergone extensive restoration and is now beautifully equipped with underfloor heating, bronze casement double glazing and all the facilities to accommodate a range of events, meetings and ceremonies.

We approach on octagon stone prospect-tower on which a small notice board is fixed. This informs us that it is the entrance of the Cemetery. But for this notification we might have fallen in to error, the place having much more the air of a gentleman's park than of a city of the dead.

History

In the mid-Victorian era, as city centre churchyards became overcrowded, carefully designed and landscaped cemeteries on the outskirts of cities became increasingly popular. As well as being natural environments often full of exotic trees and plants, many also displayed beautiful architecture designed by renowned architects of the day. London Road Cemetery is no exception, it was designed by Sir Joseph Paxton, an architect, gardener and Member of Parliament for Coventry who notably worked extensively at in the gardens at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and designed Crystal Palace in London.
