For over 600 years the wonderful carved roof angels, the dazzling stained glass and the history contained within St Nicholas' Chapel have inspired locals and visitors alike.
To protect this rich history for the future and enable this incredible building to remain as one of the jewels in King's Lynn's crown, a major fund raising campaign by the CCT and local people, has been conducted to fund both vital restoration work and an element of modernisation, costing over £2.7 million to complete.
The Chapel is still a consecrated and occasional services and some local funerals are still held. It is also in regular use for concerts, exhibitions and workshops. The modernisation work has provide better space and facilities for these events which you can view in the Venue section.
The Friends of St Nicholas promote the Chapel, and work with the Churches Conservation trust to make it a vibrant part of the local community. Under 'Friends' you can find out more about our activities.
The bells having been rehung we are now having regular ringing and have enjoyed visits from other tower teams. practice nights are being held on the third Wednesday of the month at 1930 hrs.
On the 6th of December 2016 a peal of Cambridge Surprise Major was rung. We are lucky to have three towers in Lynn with a good a good ring of 6,8 and 10 bells.
SO WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE MORE RINGERS! RETURNING OR NOVICE RINGERS WELCOME.
Anyone interested in starting or furthering their interest in bellringing please contact John Martin email@example.com who will be able to advise you on the facilities available locally.
