Withcote chapel is a quaint abandoned church in Leicestershire.
Grade i listed it was built in the early 16th century as a private chapel for the Withcote estate.
The stained glass here actually outdates the chapel and was sourced from another location. It is thought that the glass was built by Gaylon Hone, who was Henry Viii choice of glazier.
In 1744 the chapel underwent renovations and most of the internal features date back to this period.
The renovations were of the highest standard, the renaissance style reredos is beautiful with its Corinthian columns and marble plaques flanking a beautiful painting as the centrepiece.
The only clues to the lack of use to this chapel are a few cobwebs and a small amount of peeling paint.
It is currently cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust. I only hope it continues to be looked after and maybe put back to some use.
