Nottingham (Bestwood Park) – Divine Infant of Prague (chapel-of-ease)

Cherry Orchard Mount, Bestwood Park Estate, Nottingham NG5

A modern utilitarian structure, not of special architectural or historic interest.

The church is a chapel-of-ease, served from Bulwell. It would appear to have started life as a dual-purpose church and hall. In 1978 extensions to form a sanctuary, day chapel, sacristies and confessional were built from designs by Reynolds & Scott of Manchester and Nottingham. The cost was £17,348. This became an independent parish in the early 1970s but has since been re-attached to its mother parish of Bulwell.

The church is a modern flat-roofed structure faced in bricks laid in stack bond. The interior is utilitarian and hall-like in character. The adjoining presbytery, which is let, has a pitched pantile roof.
