The Union Chapel has just released a series of short films that tell the story of this non-conformist building, as part of the Union Chapel Heritage Programme funded by Historic England. The programme celebrates the Union Chapel non-conformist heritage, a story of a minority group who were suppressed for their seemingly radical beliefs and who gained significant popular support because of their humanitarianism, becoming a powerful social and political force within society and creating great change that we still experience today.
Sarah Khan, Quinquennial Architect at the Union Chapel has taken part in two of these films, describing the architecture and the challenges of its conservation.
The full suite of movies is available on the Union Chapel website https://www.unionchapel.org.uk/projects/heritage/a-film-about-our-heritage
Our offices will continue to be at the Union Chapel and we are proud of being part of its history. Over last year we helped with the quinquennial inspection, the conservation works of the Wheel Window on the east elevation and the re-roofing project for the external structures which is scheduled for 2021.
