For our final morning with Yulia we took a drive to Stansted Park for a walk around the gardens and a spot of lunch in the Pavilion Cafe. All of the buildings on site were shut for the winter but we took a look around the outside of the chapel and this door caught my eye. Having done a little research I discovered that this chapel, built in 1812, was the inspiration for John Keats?? 1819 poem The Eve of St Agnes [en.wikipedia.org].
