The Roadside Chapel at my summer place.

2nd September 2015


While I was cycling during my summer holidays I came across the little small chapel.The chapel is located on the private property. So I was very interested in this chapel  and I decided to take some photos. And suddenly the owner - an elderly woman turned up. She invited me to her garden and told the story about the chapel.





It was built in the 19th century - in 1872. The builder was her grand grand grand ..... grandfather who happily had came back from Uprising and as a special thank God who survived his life..

All equipment in the chapel is original from 19th century



What is very interesting the wooden oak door dated from 19th century too.


The builder's name was Lukas..


The woman and her family take care of this little church..

Thanks for visiting

  3. What's this 1872 Polish uprising???
    I can't find anything about it.
    Good that you removed that start of WW2 video.
    I didn't look at it.
    Very generous of the lady to give you a conducted tour of the
    church/chapel.
    Cheers

    1. The problem is that taking care is not very cheap but the lady doesn't seem so well-off

  8. It's an interesting building. I'm wondering how many people will fit inside. It's lovely that someone is taking care of it, a labor of love I'm sure.
