Woodside Park
London

This year is the 30th Anniversary of the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster. A new wooden chapel dedicated to the memory of the victims of Chernobyl is currently under construction. It will serve as a reminder of the tragic loss of a great number of rural settlements in Belarus and Ukraine after the disaster.

 

This is the first wooden church to be built in London area since the Great Fire, designed by Spheron Architects (www.spheronarchitects.co.uk) and constructed by Timberwright (www.timberwright.co.uk)

 

An exhibition will be held with limited access just across the road from the building site of the Belarusian/Chernobyl Memorial Chapel(currently under construction). The exhibition is entitled 'Remembering Chernobyl, London's First Wooden Church since 1666', and there will be a limited guided tour of the building site in June. The exhibition will be open to the public for most weekends in June.

 

Items from the private collection of the Belarusian Library and Museum in London (Francis Skaryna Library and Museum), as well as the architectural drawings and the 1:20 model of the Chernobyl Memorial Chapel will be exhibited.
