Town clerk Anne Jenkins said: "St Anne's Chapel has always been a fascinating and significant building within the town and the council wishes to restore this beautiful building and bring it back into the heart of the community."

The chapel is considered a 'hidden gem' within the community, however, if we are successful with the second stage, the planned programme to develop this project will allow St Anne's to become one of Barnstaple's jewels.
