3b. The sculptures and artwork of the sculpture and artist John Bunting

John Bunting sculptor sculptures

This chapel was built by the sculptor John Bunting in 1957 in memorial to three ex-students of Ampleforth College who were killed on active service in World War II. On Sunday August 29th 2010 the chapel was open to the public and the family had arranged a superb display of many works by John Bunting and a photographic opportunity I could not let go! The sculptures were arranged both in the chapel and in the surrounding green woodland area. The sculptures are quite stunning and their beauty rests easy in this rural open air gallery!

There are more pictures of the chapel on page 03a.
