Cemetery Chapel

Cemetery Chapel, Ings Lane, Brompton-by-Sawdon, Scarborough, YO13 9DR

This small chapel was built in 1889 to serve the rural community at Brompton-by-Sawden. It is an important early work by English architect Temple Lushington Moore, who went on to become one of the countries leading church architects of the Edwardian period. He was responsible for building 38 new churches in England, nearly all of which are listed.

Despite its small size, the Chapel of Rest displays a number of features that are characteristic of Moore’s designs, including the use of asymmetry, the subtle variations in stonework and the impression that the building has evolved over centuries, even though it is less than 150 years old.

The chapel was picked as one of Historic England’s 21 fascinating listings of 2019. For more, please see:
