A large, deconsecrated, 19th century chapel awaiting rehabilitation
just a stone’s throw from “Normandy’s Venice”, in the French department of Eure
Pont-Audemer, EURE upper-normandy 27500 FR

Location

162 km from Paris, 23 km from Honfleur with its well-known restaurants, tourist activities and fishing port, 47 km from Le-Havre and 55 km from Rouen.
The nearest market town with all food shops is but a 500 m walk away and, with its canals crossing from one side to the other, it is a delight for the eyes. This little village, much appreciated by tourists is an additional asset for potential buyers, seeking to initiate a cultural project. The surrounding economic way of life is dynamic.

Description

This large chapel is set back off the main street which runs the length of the commune.
Part of a co-owned property undergoing conversion works to create comfortable flats, the chapel adjoins the latter.
It was constructed in1890 from stone which has been rendered, leaving exposed red brick used for the load-bearing pillars and the window framing.
The walls have tall openings, some of the semi-circular arches of which still feature stained glass windows.
The chapel is topped with a gable, slate roof.
Two entrances provide access to the inside.

The chapel

This 11 m high edifice, spanning 220 m², is modest in size.

It has a barrel vaulted nave. The ribs of the domed apse are supported on corbelling. The thin engaged columns of the chancel arch pillars are extended into a string course, forming a raised decorative feature.
A wooden stairway leads to a tribune with wrought wooden balusters. The floor is covered with parquet flooring and a sort of finely designed Greek border runs the length of the walls.
The sacristy, spanning approx. 40 m², with its original lockers, chests of drawers and wardrobes, is a little room adjoining the chapel.

Our opinion

An exhibition hall, an art gallery or a concert hall are just some of the many new possible vocations for this old religious edifice. Its new owners will perhaps have other ideas and carry out the appropriate works. In any event, this 19th century chapel stands out courtesy of its simplicity, the purity of its lines and the size of its vault which is by no means gigantesque. The tourist trade of the village in which it stands can but guarantee the success of the project that has inspired its new owners, left indifferent by well-worn pathways.
