History

In 1932 Brickendon was transferred from the parish of All Saints, Hertford to the parish of Bayford. The field in which the chapel was to be built was marked by the setting up of a large oak cross in 1931. Designed by the architect W.F.Haslip, who had previously converted an old timber barn into a chapel, it was built using timber cut from trees on the Brickendon estate. The pews came from Ely Cathedral where the builders of the chapel were also carrying out alterations. The chapel was consecrated in 1933. The font was originally a sundial.
