Former chapel has been lovingly refurbished to provide family home


MANY people think of their home as their castle — but for one couple in Nettlebed their converted chapel has been a place to worship.

Judi Sutherland and her husband Frank Roche were immediately taken with the history and location of Chapel House when they first saw it, nearly 12 years ago. The former Congregational chapel dates back to the 1830s, and was converted into a house in the late Sixties.

Now, after lavishing some tender loving care on their home for the last decade, the couple are off to pastures new as Frank’s job as a chemical engineer for a pharmaceuticals company is set to take them to Yorkshire.

Judi, a writer and poet, admitted they would love to stay in their current home but were looking forward to the adventure ahead of them.

She said: “We would love to stay here. We had previously lived in Windsor for seven years and have a lot of friends here. We were first attracted to the house because of the area — it is tucked away with some great walks and bike rides yet you are still only 10 minutes from Henley for all amenities and of course Nettlebed itself has some unique businesses.”
