Artist's Description

1884 The Chapel (Poulett Hall) and the Rev. Edward Peek
Sir Henry Peek, the tea planter, bought Poulett House for his brother, the Rev. Edward Peek. Rev. Peek educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge and widely travelled, refurbished Poulett House luxuriously and converted the stables into a chapel in 1884.

Evensong continued in the Peek Chapel until 1973 when the Rev. Peter Nicholson became vicar. He continued with the early morning mass but decided to say evensong in the Parish Church. Due to falling numbers in the congregation, Rev. Murray Dell decided to cease all services in the 1980’s. The chapel was deconsecrated. In 1999 it was sold and the name changed to ‘Poulett Hall’. The new owners of the Alexandra (the Haskins family) bought this little chapel and it found itself back in the care of the main house once again. The money from the purchase went to the newly established charitable trust.

The hall came back to life once more, when in January 2001, lit with candles and filled with flowers it became the venue for the marriage blessing of the Haskins second daughter.
