Origins

The Chapel is dedicated to and derives its name from Saint Werburgh, a 7th Century AD English Abbess who was born about 659 AD and died around 699 AD. Saint Werburgh was the daughter of Wulfere, King of Mercia and the third Abbess of Ely, decedent of the Saxon queens.

Legend

St Werburgh is attributed with the miracle of restoring the life of a goose. The legend tells of a flock of wild geese that were penned for the night for devouring the corn and fruits of Weedon. The goose had been stolen by one of her servants but by virtue of St Werburgh’s benediction, the bird was restored and flew away “fulsome”.

History

In 1836 George Edward Egerton-Warburton, a young lieutenant of the 51st Regiment, arrived in Albany.

With the help of artisans the building was completed in 1837 and Bishop Hale consecrated the Chapel on the 21st June, 1874.

The walls were made of clay plug and the roof of shingles, probably sheoak. An Albany carpenter undertook the woodwork, using local sheoak and jarrah. The ironwork was made in the family forge and the font had been the family mortar.

Preservation

As with all old buildings, preservation and restoration work has been an ongoing concern.

The walls, floor, roof, bell tower and drainage have all had attention and some of these need more work undertaken.

In order to help maintain these commitments a Restoration Fund has been established to preserve this Chapel for future generations.
