Lotherton Chapel

Lotherton Chapel is a small building dating to the 12th century that is next to Lotherton Hall in Leeds. It fell into disrepair until 1913 when Colonel Gascoigne, the then owner of the Hall, had it refurbished to be used as a family chapel, though it is still Church of England property.

For such a small chapel there are some interesting things to see. What immediately stands out is this reredos dating from the 17th century and thought to be of German or Italian origin. It depicts St George in between two saints.

Another figure of St George is dedicated to Colonel Gascoigne who died in 1937.

And there is a single stained glass window of Mary and baby Jesus, a memorial to Evelyne Cunliffe, sister to Colonel Gascoigne’s wife.

It’s a pretty little chapel and worth popping in on a visit to Lotherton Hall.
