The Little Chapel
Les Vauxbelets, Guernsey
An intricately decorated tiny place of worship.
One year after his arrival to Guernsey, Channel Islands, UK in 1913, Frère Déodat began building his first tiny chapel. Dissatisfied with the finished product, he immediately began constructing another one that lasted for about ten years before demolishing it in 1923.
Years later, before returning back to France, Déodat finally fulfilled his vision and built what is still today The Little Chapel. Standing at about 3 x 5 meters this little place of worship is decorated with stones, pebbles, broken china, glass, and donated items.
