Oundle School Chapel, Oundle, Northamptonshire

Oundle School is one of the premier public schools in England (when the English say public school they mean a private school – confusing but that’s how it is!). The Chapel – a superb example of late gothicised architecture was consecrated in 1923.

It is officially the Chapel of St. Anthony and was built as a memorial to the fallen of World War I. Work continued throughout the 20th Century with the bulk of construction being finished by the 1950s when the apse windows designed by John Piper were installed. More recently 36 new stained glass windows by Mark Angus were installed in the nave to celebrate the Millennium.

It’s a fantastic building and the crown of Oundle’s many architectural gems.
