The foundation stone of the Grosvenor Chapel was laid on 7 April 1730 by Sir Richard Grosvenor, 4th Baronet, owner of the surrounding property, who had leased the site for 99 years at a peppercorn rent to a syndicate of four “undertakers” led by Benjamin Timbrell, a prosperous local builder.
The new building was completed and ready to use by April 1731.
Soon after the original 99-year lease ran out in 1829 the chapel was brought within the parochial system as a Chapel of ease to St George's, Hanover Square.
The chapel has been the spiritual home to a number of famous people including John Wilkes, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Garret Wesley, 1st Earl of Mornington, and his wife (parents to the Duke of Wellington), Florence Nightingale, U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower and Bishop Charles Gore.
Grosvenor Chapel Reviews
Walk down from Hyde Park end and it’s visible from the top of the street. Great looking building and some history around it. Recommended more »
Church of the Immacualate Conceptionの緑地を西へ抜けて、大通りへ出た左側にありました 地元民の教会で派手さは無かったですが、中は質素ながらも興味を引く教会でした 腰壁が濃い茶色、それ以外は天井も壁も真っ白でした 教会好きの方にはお勧めです more »Spandrel walls Church attract the interest yet frugal while is no glitz in the Church of the local people on the left through the Church of the Immacualate Conception of parkland to the West, and went out to the street, but it was dark brown, Is recommended to church otherwise, it was a white ceiling and walls of love
Passing by today thought I would pop in for a bit of peace and reflection. Been a year today since my younger Sister died from cancer so this was a lovely Church to pop in to on my way to work and remember her. Really outstanding and made me feel a whole lot better for it.
Beautiful place to celebrate a wedding!
