Horne's Place Chapel

Though many of English Heritage’s Free to Enter sites remain open to visitors, unfortunately it has been necessary – as a result of advice relating to coronavirus - to close Horne's Place Chapel for operational reasons, in order to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Before You Go

A rare survival of a fine domestic chapel, Horne's Place Chapel was built for William Horne in 1366 and attached to his timber-framed manor house, which was attacked during the Peasants' Revolt of 1381.

The house and chapel are privately owned.
