Oak Grove Chapel, Norwich

This striking building sits just inside the inner ring road on the way to Old Catton. Most memorable is the needle-like spire which rises a little incongruously from what is otherwise a typical yellow-brick and slate roof chapel of the 1960s. With three dormer windows and a transept that echoes a semi-detached house of the period, it fits in well with its surroundings - indeed, you might almost call the style neo-domestic. The frontage is bolder, with a large, pleasing vertically-divided window above the entrance, as if this might be a small suburban cinema after all.
