Marlow Widmere Chapel

OAU, OAU Marlow Widmere Chapel. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




The Grade II* listed Chapel at Widmere Farm was stripped of external render, and its fabric recorded in August 1999 by Oxford Archaeological Unit. The 13th century chapel is of special interest in being on an estate belonging to the Knights Hospitallers. Evidence was found for the changes in the walls when new windows were added in the 14th century, and the survival of the original rood (with notch-lapped joints) was noted as a significant feature. A watching brief on the digging of drains revealed no significant buried features.
