Your Reviews of Rycote Chapel

Jackie Baldwin (15 May 2012)

I have been to Rycote chapel on several occassions as my maiden name was Quartermaine. The first time I visited the lady who 'manned' the kiosk asked if I would like to sign a visitors book which she only allowed Quartermaines to sign - this would be around 1983 or so, as I was there with my son who was doing a school project on his ancestors. According to the lady on duty there were visits from hundreds of Quartermaines, many from far afield - Canada and the like. On subsequent visits that person was not there and the custodian knew nothing of the visitors book which was unfortunate as I think it could have been useful for family historians. The chapel never seems to change - it is quite beautiful and serene. My second husband and I had hoped to marry there but unfortunately, in spite of numerous requests by many people (who I assume have some link to it) this is not allowed.

Living close by many years ago, I constantly brought visitors to Rycote Chapel. Now living in New Zealand, I am directing them to go and see it. A very worthwhile visit and a delight to see.
