Eating and shopping at Sandham Memorial Chapel

Sandham Memorial chapel shop handmade ceramics

Sandham is unique in so many ways and we want to reflect this in products available for you to buy. We hope you will find our good selection of books - covering Spencer, art, the First World War and locally sourced products both unusual and appropriate to this special place. Whilst we do not have a tea room there is The Carpenters Arms (not National Trust) just across the road from us who serve teas/coffees and lunches.

Eating & Shopping


Why not bring a picnic with you and enjoy sitting in the shade of our oak tree at the front or in the sunshine at the back in our new garden of reflection? Alternatively you could visit the local  Carpenters Arms  pub (not National Trust) which is only a short walking distance from us for teas, coffees or lunch.

Our shop in our visitor reception area stocks locally made products, books, postcards, CD’s and stationary - outside we have locally grown plants and garden sculptures.


In addition to our guidebook and exhibition catalogue which was produced to accompany the paintings when at Somerset House, Pallant House and Manchester Art Gallery we have a good selection of other books.  These include those about Spencer and the chapel, about other First World War artists, history, poetry and letters. You can browse these and there is always someone available to talk about the books so you can select those most suited to you.


One of our most popular ranges are locally handmade ceramics including coasters, mugs and plates specifically designed for us. There are also plant markers, buttons, flower pots, egg cups and hanging decorations.  Our “poppy” themed notelets and post it notes are also popular.


Our plants, again sourced locally are extremely popular and competitively priced.  In addition we will have plants from cuttings and seeds from our newly created garden in coming years.
There is also a lovely range of garden sculptures including hedgehogs, ducks, owls and cranes and stakes with bright red poppies or seed heads.
