Hampton Court Chapel (Hereford)

Recommended Posts

Yes, there really is one!

This afternoon I drove past the entrance to the Hampton Court Castle which is at Hope-under-Dinmore, a few miles south of Hereford. A look at the website this evening - https://www.hamptoncourtcastle.co.uk/ - reveals an extremely grand building, the website of which says that the oldest parts - including the chapel - date from 1427.

I looked up this location on the National Pipe Organ Register (NPOR) and there is an entry, dated 2002, for the chapel. The organ is reported as being unusable and "in pieces" in 2001. No builder is given but I should think, going by the specification, it is / was an instrument from the Victorian period or perhaps earlier. Does anyone know anything of the instrument's history? I can find nothing online.

Cheers,

Dave
