The Lady Chapel

This was built circa 1350. To the right of the Holy Table is a fine ogee arch above twin Piscinae. In the middle ages these shallow stone basins were used for washing the Chalice and Paten after Mass.  The  beautiful  east window, installed in 1900, was inspired by the ancient hymn Te Deum Laudamus—it represents the worship of Almighty God by the Church triumphant in heaven and the Church militant on earth.  Between the Chapel and the High Altar is the Tudor tomb of Sir Anthony Browne and his first wife Alice. Sir Anthony was a favourite of King Henry VIll who granted him the Abbey and its estates in 1539 after the dissolution of the monasteries. The Lady Alice died in 1540, Sir Anthony in 1548. The alabaster tomb was probably made in London by Italian craftsmen and transported by cart to Battle.
