This is an interesting portion of the castle and occupies the whole of the basement below the forebuilding. "Although very ornate, the work is not an example of thoughtful construction. It is very irregular in design and execution. The adjacent parts are clumsily brought together and rude in workmanship as compared with Maurice the architects work at Dover" (W.H. Knowles). The external walls of the chapel are very thin, only 2ft 9in, but originally there was no direct communication between it and the interior of the tower. It consists of a chancel with a nave or ante-chapel at right angles.

A Visitors Book is available if you would like to make any comments or requests.
