The Grade 1 listed St Anne's Chapel in Paternoster Row is one of Barnstaple's oldest buildings and is thought to date back to the 14th century, while the crypt is understood to date back to 12th century.
The chapel has met important funding criteria and Barnstaple Town Council now has two years to submit a fully-developed proposal to compete for a firm award.
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."

Mayor of Barnstaple, Ian Roome, added: "The town council is delighted to have been successful in the Heritage Lottery first round bid for this project. 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.
