UK»England»Derbyshire»Padley Chapel

Padley Chapel is hidden away on the upper floor of the Padley Hall Gatehouse, it survives today long after the Hall was ruined and was used as a barn for over 100 years, before being restored in 1933. On July 12th 1588, Padley Hall was raided and the two catholic priests, and several members of the Fitzherbert family were arrested. The Padley Martyrs were either hung or died in prison and a pilgramage takes place to this day in their memory on the Sunday nearest the 12th July. Padley Chapel has a long and fascinating history and is the sort of place that continues to command attention, after being struck by lightning in 2006 it is again fully restored and open for visitors.
