Having recently visited The Painted Hall at The Old Royal Naval College I was keen
to explore the historic grounds. And after being goaded by a tourist guide to walk down
the length of a rather strange looking basement undercroft, I suddenly arrived into
the doorway of the grand surroundings of The St Peter and St Paul Chapel.
And it's actually the adjoining building next to The Painted Hall.
The building was gutted by fire back in 1779. It was then rebuilt by James 'Athenian'
Stuart in a neo-classical style and to this day is still an active Chapel with choral
performances put on by local music and Dance students.

Above: The Chapel organ created by Samuel Green,
the finest organ maker of his day.
It was built and fitted into position in 1798 and is amazingly
still in use.

and straight to the adjoining building, The Chapel.
