The Vyne and Sandham Chapel

Wednesday 27 April 2022

Coach departs: 8.30am
Cost: £35 (NT Members) or £55.35 (non-NT Members)

Our first destination will be The Vyne, near Basingstoke.  After a coffee break, we will have a guided tour of the House; described by Simon Jenkins as the loveliest mansion in Hampshire, the House embraces Tudor, Early Palladian, Georgian Gothick and Victorian Revival styles. 

After a break for lunch, we will be taken by coach to Sandham Memorial Chapel at Burghclere (towards Newbury).  The Chapel is perhaps the greatest work of Stanley Spencer who decorated its walls with paintings reflecting his experiences in the Great War in Salonika, part of the Macedonian front.  We will have a talk on the Chapel and its paintings, and there will be time for tea before we depart.  

Please note that the cost of the meals and refreshments are not included in the ticket price. We expect to get back to Chorleywood at around 6pm.
