Biddlestone Catholic Chapel

  • Description

    "Biddlestone Chapel is one of the North East's smaller architectural treasures and is HCT's most remotely sited chapel, built in 1820 on the remains of a 14th-century fortified pele tower. The pele was one of many built along the English/Scottish borders from which signal fires were lit to warn of approaching dangers.

A local volunteer committee supports HCT in its efforts to make the chapel accessible....."
