St Anne's Chapel, Barnstaple, North Devon - Gothic building in miniature

St Anne's is set in a green, pedestrianized oasis in the heart of Barnstaple; a Gothic building in miniature, in the middle of the Parish Church cemetery. St. Anne’s is one of group of historic stone buildings concentrated in between Barnstaple’s two main shopping streets. It has been used for several purposes over the years so offers an exciting film / photography location.
The building is Barnstaple’s last surviving Chantry Chapel. Although there is no record of when St. Anne’s was built it is thought to date predominately to the early 14th century. In addition to the Chantry Chapel, St. Anne’s has a ground floor or undercroft which could have been the site for the tomb or burial of the building’s founder or it could have been a charnel house. A charnel house is a place where the bones disturbed by later burials could be stored with respect.
In 1549 St. Anne’s ceased to be a church building, around this time the Tudor tower was added to south elevation. In the early part of the 17th century until 1910 the building was the town Gramma School. Between 1685 and 1761 the Huguenots were given permission to use St. Anne’s as their place of worship with services held in French. This practice continued alongside the grammar school.
Following a Heritage Lottery grant it is currently being used as an Arts and Community Centre so has modern lighting and facilities.
