A level of decoration that just has to be seen……

Compton 4

This chapel is quite tiny and the whole interior is just covered in decoration.  The amount of work and time that it took is quite amazing, but it was a labour of love for the widow of the artist George Frederic Watts, who had lived nearby.  Very nicely the work of the people of Compton is also acknowledged and the presence of the local dead in the cemetery outside.
