Octagon Chapel


The Octagon Chapel - one of north Norwich's many historical treasures. The architect who conceived it was Thomas Ivory and this Unitarian chapel - constructed as a perfect octagon - was completed in 1756. Not everyone approved though; detractors described it as, 'the devil's cucumber frame'.
