“Not to be overlooked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

This small but beautiful Chapel is set back off the main square behin the Cloth Hall.This Chapel is well worth a short visit if you are visiting Ypres (Leper) , each row of pews contain cushions of many Regiments and the walls are covered some unique and interesting plaques.
Not to be overlooked.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

This is a very special little church; not far from the main square but easy to miss. It is essentially a church that is dedicated to the memory of those that were killed in the Ypres salient in WW1. The walls are lined with memorial plaques, all of which are well worth looking at.

“Sanctuary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

A place of prayerful reflection if you wish or a place to sit in the silence of eternity reflecting on the sacrifice of generations and the sadness that we seemed to have learnt nothing...

“tragic loss of young lives remembered”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

So touching to see all the plaques and memorials to all the young lads killed in the First World War. Fascinating insight into the number of little more than schoolboys fighting as soldiers as many of the plaques are from the schools they attended.
