Sandham Memorial Chapel was purpose-built to commemorate the First World War. It contains world-famous, visionary paintings by the artist Sir Stanley Spencer, refelcting on his own experiences of The War.

Unlike many war memorials, the interior paintings do not commemorate the heroism and brave sacrifice of soldiers in action. The murals of the Chapel provide a rare window onto the very human side of war: chores and kit checks alongside the brotherly love between soldiers and hope for a more peaceful future.

Now, for the Centenary of the First World War, Sandham is undergoing an exciting project to restore the Chapel and enhance the visitor experience. We will be re-opening to the public at the end of July 2014. We are also working hard to involve local people in this transformation. It’s a very exciting time to become a part of a very special place and to help share this gem with visitors.
