EGHAM STROUD ROAD The Chapel at former Holloway Sanatorium, Virginia Water

GV II*

Chapel to former private lunatic asylum, formerly linked but now free-standing. 1882-4 by W H Crossland, altered and remodelled internally in 1899-1900 by G F Bodley. Fine red brick with stone dressings, rose window and crow-stepped gable over entrance. Three-light traceried windows along side and round three-sided apse. Franco-Flemish Flamboyant Gothic style. Interior rib vaulted with stencilled decoration. West gallery. High timber panelling, damaged, by Bodley. Altar removed. Stained glass attributable to C E Kempe. The chapel was conceived later than the main asylum building, although a separate chapel was a normal requirement of asylums by that date. Holloway was not specially religious, and it had originally been intended that worship would take place in the upper hall - a reason, perhaps, for the elaborate scheme of decoration. The chapel is closer in style to Royal Holloway College, on which Holloway and his trustees were engaged by the 1880s. The result, appropriate to such a lavish celebration of Holloway's achievement and philanthropy, forms a strong group with the main building. SOURCE: Victorian Society Annual, 1995
