A tribute to the life and work of Brian Torode

St Mary of the Angels, Brownshill also known as ‘Templewood Chapel’

This is a photographic blog but more historical details about the history of the chapel will be added in due course.

The Chapel was built in 1937 to the designs of William Douglas Caroe (1858-1938) for the Little Company of Hope. This order was founded by Bertha Kessler and Katherine Hudson who both died in 1963.

The glass in the chapel is by Douglas Strachan (1875-1950)

Since 2011 the chapel has been in the care of Friends of Friendless Churches
