|Even the modest exterior of the chapel on the right would not have been seen|
when it was first built, before the Catholic Relief Act.
Sadly the title died with a heroic Lord Arundell who contracted tuberculosis in Colditz Castle in the Second World War. The house was sold but the chapel is the property of a special trust, and as well as Ordinary Form Masses twice a week there is a quarterly Tradtitional Mass there on a Saturday.
It is the finest private chapel in the country, splendid in the deepest sense of the word. The Altar was made in Rome and shipped over.
I hope to see more Masses in this historic chapel.
