Magdalen Chapel in Holloway

Wide View of Wartime Damage

This picture, taken from Beechen Cliff, shows what blast damage can do. A 50Kg bomb landed in a garden on the opposite side of the road from the chapel (just off the right hand side of the picture), damaging the roof, ceiling, and destroying part of the outer wall, though most of that damage is off the right hand edge of the photograph.  Note the emergency water tank on the left of the picture.

Picture of Wartime Damage
This picture by Donald Stride is now in the Bath Library collection.

A picture of the interior showing damage to the roof, ceiling, and windows of the chapel. The chapel wall out of sight to the right of the stained glass window collapsed, hence the brighter light at that end of the chapel.

The chapel was repaired and reopened in 1949 and is still in use today.

Modern Picture
This picture by Jim Warren was taken during Open Week, and not during a service.
