The guides at the Maison Dieu have a key to this tiny chapel - said to be the smallest church still in regular use in England. It was built in 1252/3 and my guide called it 'the miracle church' not only because of the mediaeval...More

Situated behind the main shopping area. It is very small and worth it to pop your head in the door. It has room only for a few people inside but it is used only occasionally on St Edmunds feast day and a couple of other...More

It is quite well hidden but his is a great little church. It was hidden behind another building for years and was nearly demolished. I came across it while doing the Bluebird Heritage walk.

Our host pointed this out to us, and we went back on foot later in the week. Such a lovely, hidden gem. Very evocative. Be sure to walk by and have a look.

Lovely tiny chapel tucked away beside an alleyway into the pedestrianised town centre. Not aware that it is open, but walk past it often and admire the building.

Atmospheric and ancient chapel hidden away in the centre of Dover with a beautiful little garden. Information panel outside but on Wednesdays the tour guides at the Maison Dieu will take you over and let you in - worth asking.

This little chapel just goes to show how much of Dover's history is literally spread all over the town. Blink and you will miss this tiny chapel, which was once a place to worship for pilgrims on their way to or from Canterbury. Almost 800...More

St Edmund's Chapel is well hidden but close to the Dover Town Hall. It is the oldest chapel in use completed in 1262. It is well worth a visit but is usually by appointment only. Check out the website for details http://www.stedmundschapel.co.uk/contact.html
