Guernsey 04 - The Little Chapel

According to wikipedia, see link below, this could be the smallest functioning chapel in Europe, if not the world.

Built by originally built by Brother Déodat in 1914, this is the third version on the chapel. He demolished the previous two,  the first due to criticism by fellow monks, the second as the Bishop could not fit through the doorway. The third, as it stands now is 16ft x 9ft.

It was closed in 2015 due to major structural problems. The chapel has been reopened in April this year but still has much to be repaired. The estimated cost is at least £500,000.

The Little Chapel is decorated with seashells, broken china and pebbles.
