Biddlestone Chapel
Biddlestone Chapel
This unusual building started off as a medieval tower house or Pele, first mentioned in a survey of 1415. In the 17th century the tower was incorporated into a larger manor house which became part of Biddlestone Hall in about 1800. In the 19th century the upper floors of the tower were converted into a Roman Catholic Chapel. In World War II part of the basement became an air raid shelter as the Hall was used as a convalescence home. After the War the Hall fell into disuse and was eventually demolished in 1957.
