PROVOST LUPTON'S TOWER AND THE CHAPEL AT ETON

PROVOST LUPTON'S TOWER AND THE CHAPEL AT ETON

The stone of the chapel and the red brick of Lupton's Gateway make a brave contrast on a sunny morning. The former was founded in 1441 by Henry VI, five years before he laid the first stone of the chapel of King's, Cambridge, which Eton's chapel much resembles. In 1700 the present roof, of wood, was put on, and in 1848-60 extensive restoration took place. The whole structure is 175 feet long and 82 feet high. Provost Lupton's Tower is early sixteenth century, but two bell turrets were added in 1764.
