Organiser: Jonathan McCafferty
Price: £10.

By kind permission of the Conduct, The Revd Stephen Gray, we are able to offer a rare opportunity to make a morning visit to the College Chapel. The chapel was intended to become one of the great places of pilgrimage in Europe.  Owing to the downfall of the founder Henry VI, it was never completed.  The Flemish style wall paintings, dating from 1479 and revealed in 1923, are said to be the most remarkable work of art in the College. The Chapel glass, replacing war-time damage, provides one of the masterpieces of modern stained-glass art including designs by John Piper.

We will meet at Windsor & Eton Riverside station (served by trains from London Waterloo) at 10.30 AM.  Cost: £10.00
