Peplow ChapelThe chapel was designed by the famous Victorian architect, Norman Shaw in the style of a cruciform and is built of brick, in the early English style. The unusual brick and timber design on the end and side walls is known as "nogging".

A large mural is an outstanding feature which is painted on the walls of the chancel and depicts "The Epiphany". It was painted by Douglas Strachan and was commissioned by Beville Stanier in 1903, in memory of Francis Stanier.

There is a single bell situated above the communion rail.




The Chapel corner stone was laid in 1877, by Caroline Stanier in the presence of the Bishop of Lichfield. The costs of construction were met by the Stanier family, who bought Peplow Hall and the estate from Lord Hill in 1873.

It is possible that the chapel was built on much older foundations.

The chapel remained a part of the Peplow estate until the late 1940's when it passed to the Lichfield Diocese.
