Chapel Island

Adventurers will love the challenge of a trip to Chapel Island. The island can be reached on foot from Canal Foot at low tide, but caution is advised.

To get to Chapel Island you will need to cross a channel of around 15 yards before crossing the more challenging River Leven channel where water tends to flow faster and deeper.

Once you have reached the island you’ll likely be greeted by the call of wading birds and perhaps a fisherman or two. The overgrown island has one building, a ruined chapel built in the 19th century by Colonel Thomas Bradyll, owner of Conishead Priory. It was built to resemble a ruin and is more a folly than a real building.

Trips to Chapel Island are recommended with experienced guides only.
