Hidden Chapels

 I like to wander around back lanes and out of the way places which often reveal a fascinating glimpse of history. These two chapels are almost hidden away and so easy to walk past unnoticed.

The first is in Winchester, the Church of St Swithun upon Kingsgate, at the western of the Cathedral grounds, it's been a place of quiet contemplation and prayer  for pilgrims for over 800 years.

The second is the King's Chapel of the Savoy in London, located immediately behind and hidden by the hotel of the same name. Dating back to a hospice founded by Henry VII in 1512.

I probably should have done this post in time for Easter, so excuse the poor timing.
