New lighting shows up details in the Lady Chapel

New lighting has been installed in the Lady Chapel, the most ornately carved part of Rosslyn Chapel, to help visitors gain a better appreciation of the intricate stonework.

Three lights have been designed specifically for Rosslyn Chapel by Gavin Fraser, of Foto-Ma Lighting Architects and Designers, and manufactured by Loanhead company Mike Stoane Lighting. The cost of the new lights has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Lady Chapel is fifteen feet high, seven and a half feet deep and extends the whole thirty-five foot width of the Chapel. It is divided into vaulted compartments and contains some of the richest carvings including angels, green men and the ‘dance of death’.
