Gotherington Chapel

The chapel in Gotherington, founded by the Countess of Huntingdon in 1833, was offered for sale to Gotherington Parish Council earlier this year to be preserved as a community building. The village is expanding so this would have been a useful addition to the assets of the village. The situation at present is that an independent group has been formed to purchase the building, independently of the Parish Council. Significant funds have been raised since early April and a charity is being set up to purchase the building. The target for purchase has not yet been reached and if not met by early June the trust which own the building will put it up for auction. The Old Chapel Community Project are therefore seeking further donations. Anyone interested in assisting with this project can email Or contact 01242 674114 or 07842 180444
