photoblog image St Catherine's Chapel, Lydiate

St Catherine's Chapel, Lydiate

 

Also known locally as Lydiate Abbey, it was built c. 1500 for the private worship of the Ireland family, who held the Lydiate lordship from 1410—1673. Its use as a private chapel probably ceased c. 1550, following Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monasteries. Now a ruin on the outskirts of Lydiate with the setting sun throwing the place into silhouette.
