Becket's Chapel in Wymondham is a Grade 1 listed building, the earliest parts of which date from the 12th century. It is one of Wymondham's most important heritage assets.
The Chapel reopened in July 2023 following a programme of restoration and repair by Historic Norfolk.
Our aim is to make the chapel a multifunctional community facility that can operate year round.
It is available to hire for meetings, receptions and other activities.
From May to October each year it is home to Wymondham Arts.
Phase1of the restoration (October 2022 to July 2023) involved repairs to the fabric of the building to make it watertight, structurally sound and in a usable condition.
We are now actively planning the second phase of this project, subject to planning and funding. This will include an upgrade to the kitchen and toilet facilities, making the chapel accessible to all, and a new extension on the south side housing a café and welcome desk, and providing solar power through roof incorporated solar panels. The installation of a ground or air-source heat pump and discrete, secondary double glazing is also planned. These initiatives will make the chapel environmentally and economically sustainable.
