Rugby School Chapels, Warwickshire

Rugby School - famous throughout the world for the birth of Rugby Football - has two chapels. The most impressive is the two-tone spired structure which dominates the school buildings (to the right in the picture). This was designed by William Butterfield (who designed about 50% of the older buildings in Rugby) and was constructed around 1875.

The other Chapel, standing next door, is the plainer, more subdued Memorial Chapel designed by Sir Charles Nicholson in 1922.

The two form the core of Rugby School's historic structures.
