Nae Plans



Thank you to John Muir and the Chapel Preservation Committee for allowing Nae Plans to film in this stunning location. This lovely chapel is known as the Italian Chapel because it was built by Italian prisoners of war during World War Two. Five hundred men were housed at Camp 60 on Lamb Holm, having been sent to Orkney to help build the Churchill Barriers. The men had very little to work with when creating the Chapel, other than two old nissen huts, unwanted scrap and some concrete. It is quite astounding what they created - a truly unique and wonderful place, which is an unforgettable inspiration to all those who visit it. - Hamish Napier and Adam Sutherland
