Italian Chapel

By mistere
This place came up in conversation recently so i thought i'd revisit the archive and dig out some old pictures.
Situated on the tiny island of 'Lamb Holm', in the Orkneys. The Italian chapel Is quite remarkable, it has a wonderful history and the interior is beautifully decorated.
It was built during World War II by Italian prisoners of war, who were housed on the island while they constructed the Churchill Barriers to the east of Scapa Flow. If you're ever in that part of the world it's well worth a visit. I was last there in May 2003.
Happy Tuesday everyone.

What a beautiful little Chapel, and a very interesting narrative which makes the viewer appreciate the image even more.

Remarkable it is, Dave, and the interior and front at least are really pretty. An excellent little set, sir.

A well tended chapel considering it was built in the1940's, and is two Nissan huts joined together.
