The old Holy Trinity Church, opposite the school, built around 1852 has been used as an office since 1988. We reported back in April 2018 of a surprise planning application – involving conversion to a “luxury hairdressers“.
The Chapel is coming soon…
The planning application was recently approved, and the new tenants have confirmed they are proceeding with plans – expecting to open his autumn/winter, and it will become their largest ever salon.
The Chapel is the brand name for a small group of salons in Tunbridge Wells, Islington, Sevenoaks, and Verbier (yes, the fancy ski resort in Switzerland!). The name comes from the fact that the first salon in Tunbridge Wells in in a converted Chapel – so the attraction for this Marlow venue is obvious!
Having seen the plans and checked out the website (www.thechapel.co.uk) it is clear this really will be a very upmarket, top-end luxury affair, with a spacious and open feel – there would even be a coffee bar.
They company describe themselves as “Multi Award winning Hair Salons, where you are treated as a guest not just another customer.”
We are in contact with the new owners and will, as ever, keep you posted of developments……
