The Chapel of The Good Shepherd
This is the view of ‘The Chapel of The Good Shepherd’ from Ms Glade’s bedroom window.
Reverend Torr, was a vicar in Eastham Village and commissioned The Chapel to be built in the grounds of his mansion that used to be here in The Glade.
The Chapel was built in 1884-5. Since December 1986, it has been designated as a Grade II listed building by English Heritage.
Designed by John Douglas, an architect from Chester, The Chapel is built of red sandstone. John Douglas also designed some of the later parts of Chester Cathedral and because The Reverend was a cannon at Chester Cathedral, I wonder if he negotiated ‘mates rates’ from John Douglas.
It is intended that this beautiful Chapel will be our community centre.
