Chapel to the Former Convent of the Holy Child Jesus, Magdalen Road - Hastings

Former convent chapel, partly designed by Augustus Welby Pugin and completed by his son Edward Welby Pugin. The chapel has a good High Victorian Gothic interior and is a rare example of a Roman Catholic Chapel retaining the nuns' choir. The convent complex is used as a language school in the summer. Some of the more urgent repairs to the chapel have started to be addressed.
