During 2002 and 2003 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out archaeological recording and
historical analysis of Lumley Chapel, Cheam. This small chapel is all that remains of a once far
larger church which was largely demolished and replaced in the 19th century. The recording was
necessitated by the need for repairs to the roof, the replacement of areas of mortar on the exterior
walls and some restoration of brick and stonework. In 2003 a programme of work was initiated which
saw the refurbishment of the family tombs within the chapel.
During the work the roof was successfully dated by dendrochronlogy and a number of new features
were revealed. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of the restorations was the retrieval of some fine
painted glass and stone tracery which had been incorporated into the fabric of the chapel.
Although the investigation was undertaken in 2002-3 and a draft report was issued to the client a
final report was not produced. The current document is therefore a slightly updated report produced
to accompany the project archive.
