Sandham Memorial Chapel

Sandham Memorial Chapel is home to a great example of British 20th Century art.

The Chapel is the only memorial to British soldiers who fought on the Salonika Front during the First World War.

The modest, red-brick building in the village of Burghclere is filled with large scale oil paintings by the acclaimed artist Stanley Spencer.  His pictures include images of his time as a medical orderly and as a soldier on the Salonika front.

Why we love it:

  • An expert volunteer guide will be on hand to talk you through the paintings and the story of the chapel and its significance.
  • Free entry for National Trust members.
