St. Catherine's Chapel, Lydiate


Just to the north of Liverpool is the village of Lydiate. The chapel, also known as Lydiate Abbey, was built about the year 1500 for the private worship of the Ireland family, who where the lords of Lydiate from 1410—1673. The chapel fell into disuse around 1550 during the period of Henry VIII's disolution of the monasteries, when Catholicism was outlawed.

Les Auld: It does indeed Louis, thanks for the comment.

Nice to see it Les..a lot of old buildings vanished because of that.
Les Auld: A lot of history was lost aback then Ron, thanks for the comment.
