Using documentary, architectural and visual evidence from Cornwall and elsewhere, this talk will explore the form and function of household chapels. The fate of these purpose-built, and sometimes lavishly decorated, places after the Reformation will also be considered.

Dr Joanna Mattingly is a local historian, who for 30 years has lived in Cornwall, which has been the focus of her research. Her areas of interest range from churches to Victorian tea cosies.

Tea and cakes from 5.30pm at No 11 Wellington Square. Talk commences at 5.45pm.
