Channel Island Ceramics helps preserve an iconic Guernsey landmark


Channel Island Ceramics has supported the Little Chapel Fundraising project in Guernsey and in turn helped preserve the building for future generations.

The famous island landmark has been the focus of a major fundraising campaign.

£500,000 is needed to restore the chapel and repair subsidence.

The Chapel which is 16ft by 9ft in St Andrews is one of the world’s smallest consecrated chapels. A survey carried out on the building in 2015 found the structure was in real danger of falling down and could have been lost due to structural problems.

Fundraising began in earnest and most of the work has now been completed to make the structure secure.
Channel Island Ceramics has supplied new natural stone pebble mosaic for all the floors in the Chapel as well as all the needed grout and adhesive. It is thought a cross pattern is to be designed on the floor using a darker pebble inside the building.

John Litchfield from Channel Island Ceramics said, “The Little Chapel is an iconic island landmark and one that is very special to many. We specialise in tiles, so this was the perfect community project for us to be involved in. I am delighted to see the project progressing and I look forward to visiting the Chapel for years to come now its future is secure.”

It has been reported that 80,000 people visit the Little Chapel every year making it the most visiting attraction on the island.
