Iconic England: Idsworth Chapel
St. Huberts Chapel stands aloft, swept up onto a curve of chalk downland, in splendid isolation in the middle of field in the hamlet of Idsworth, some 13 miles north of the city of Portsmouth on England's Southern coast. Earl Godwin, head of one of the grandest and most powerful families of Anglo Saxon England, whose most famous son was King Harold, is believed to have had the chapel built sometime around 1030AD, when it was dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul.
The chapel contains examples of medieval paintings from around 1300 which include paintings around the altar window of St. Peter, St. Paul, and two angels. On the north wall there is a painting of St. Hubert (the patron saint of hunters, mathematicians, opticians, and metalworkers) and St. John the Baptist. The narthex contains an octagonal stone font and above it is a gallery which contains the church organ.
