Odda's Chapel

The Gloucestershire village of Deerhurst, just 9 miles from Gloucester and 2.5 miles from Tewkesbury, boasts two historic religious sites: a Saxon parish church that is still in use and Odda's Chapel, a Saxon chapel managed by English Heritage.

Odda's Chapel was built in 1056 by Odda, a relative of King Edward the Confessor, in honor of his brother Aelfric. It lay neglected until the 20th century, when the plaster that had long covered the Saxon masonry was removed.
