The Story of St Seraphim Chapel:

In 1966, Fr. Mark (later to become Fr. David) and Leon Liddament came to Walsingham as part of the newly formed Brotherhood of St.Seraphim and their role was to look after the little Orthodox Chapel that had been built in the Anglican Shrine; however, they soon felt that the local Orthodox needed a larger church. This lead to the convertion of the railway station building to its current form with the addition of an onion dome and cross. St.Seraphim’s has remained a pilgrim chapel open to all who visit Walsingham.

Throughout its history, St.Seraphim’s has been a centre for the creation of Orthodox Icons with both Leon and Fr. David earning their livings as full time iconographers.The Trust aims to build on their legacy and make St. Seraphim’s a space for the study and practice of iconography once again, reflecting the life and work of St Seraphim of Sarov through publications, literature and icons.

The display in the chapel’s entrance is to enable visitors to understand the meaning of icons, their use in worship and the home, and the technique by which they are made.
