Biddlestone Catholic Chapel


This former Roman Catholic chapel in Biddlestone has an interesting history. It was originally a pele tower built in the 13th century; the ground floor has defensive walls, which are 6 ft. thick. It was converted to be the private chapel to Biddlestone Hall (now demolished) for Waiter Selby, in the early 19th century, possibly by John Dobson in 1820.[1] The chapel is a Grade II* listed building and is maintained by the Historic Chapel Trust.[2]
