A MYSTERIOUS stone building in the heart of Torquay is to feature in a TV programme.

The building is in the large imposing wooded hill which overlooks Torre railway station. Locals call it Chapel Hill because of the historic building located at the top of it.

Some say it is a chapel where a nun lived as a hermit, others say it was a lighthouse or was it a prison?

Now a TV programme, UK Hidden Secrets, is to delve into the intrigue and mystery of St Michael's chapel. The programme's research team with their experts in the field of history, genealogy, archaeology and geophysics, are descending on Torquay next year with a camera crew to discover the chapel's history.

But it's not just about bringing experts in, UK Hidden Secrets wants the community to be involved, firstly by recounting what they know about St Michael's chapel, whether it be myth or legend, and secondly actually join the team during the first week of July and get involved with the research and make the discoveries with them.

Steve Day, chairman of the UK Hidden Secrets group dedicated to investigating, researching and exploring the mysterious and secret places from all over the UK, said: "This site is now going to be one of the series of eight programmes recorded for television to be broadcast late in 2014."
