Italian Chapel, Lamb Holm, Orkney Islands, Scotland

One more postcard from the Orkney Islands. I just HAD to post this, isn't it a cute little chapel?!

Built during World War 2 by Italian prisoners of war engaged in building the Churchill Barriers, this beautiful little chapel is all that remains of camp 60. Constructed from two Nissen huts, the chapel is situated on the Holm side of Lamb Holm. Lamb Holm is a small uninhabited island in Orkney, and the highly ornate Italian Chapel is the island's main attraction.
