Stirling Prize: Inside Bishop Edward King Chapel

Six buildings have made the shortlist of this year's Royal Institute of British Architects' Stirling Prize, considered one of the top accolades in the world of architecture. The awards are for buildings with original and imaginative designs, which meet the needs of their users.

One of those on the shortlist is the Bishop Edward King Chapel in the village of Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire.

Designed by Niall McLaughlin Architects, the chapel was built to serve Ripon theological college and a small religious order of nuns, the Community of St John the Baptist.

With its high windows and structure of limestone exterior and blond wood interior, the chapel is filled with light and a sense of space that belies its relatively small size.

BBC News went to visit the chapel to find out more.
