The original chapel formed part of the Royal Victoria Hospital which was a large military hospital extensively used during the First World War before becoming the 28th US General Hospital during the Second World War.

The original hospital was the longest building when it was completed in 1863, which was demolished in 1966 with the exception of the chapel.

As part of this Lottery Funded project, the works included restoring the existing chapel hall, viewing tower and stairs to enable future generates to understand the rich history of the building and associated country park.
