One of the oldest Catholic Chapels in England and the Church subsequently built in 1837 in Greek Revival style.
Guided tours and exhibitions of memorabilia with reference to extraordinary women who have influenced local history. In 1791 when the public profession of Catholicism was still illegal, a Catholic Chapel was constructed out of public view. As the congregation grew in size the adjoining Church was built in 1837. Both buildings remain to serve the needs of Catholics but are rich in their history and heritage and open to everyone. Sympathetically renovated in recent years, they retain their former character and beauty. The Open Days will provide the opportunity to view photographs and memorabilia and will feature the lives of extraordinary women who have etched their place in local Catholic history. Guided tours will be offered to visitors Please visit the St Edmund's Catholic Parish website for more information. Times: Friday 10 & 17 September: 11am-4pm, Saturday 11 September: 11am-3.30pm Tickets: This event is free as it is part of Heritage Open Days!
