ST BARTHOLOMEWS CHAPEL AND HOSPITAL

DESCRIPTION + /

St. Bartholomew's Chapel, High Street, Chatham, is the only surviving portion of the Hospital of St. Bartholomew, said to have been founded by Gundulph, Bishop of Rochester between AD1077 and 1108. The hospital was not suppressed and in 1837 the institution consisted of five persons. The Chapel, restored in the 19th century, is now a chapel of ease to the parish church. The apsidal-ended Chancel and Chancel arch are Norman, but the Nave is mostly Early English. There is a Norman piscina and apse. Excavation was carried out in 1978 in the area close to the entrance. A substantial flint and lime mortar wall was investigated and the finds included a variety of pottery ranging from Roman to modern in date, a 15th century column base and a clay pipe stem of the 18th Century.
