Newstead Abbey
Newstead Abbey...
Was originally an Augustinian priory founded by Henry II in about 1170.

In 1540 Henry VIII granted Newstead to the poet's ancestor, Sir John Byron.

Newstead Abbey retains its medieval character.

The most famous survival is the west front of the church, which dates from the late 13th century.

The chapel was built in the 13th century.

It was originally the Chapter House for the Priory.

However, the Byron family converted it into a chapel.

When the poet Lord Byron lived in the house he used the chapel to house his menagerie.

The chapel was later enlarged by the Wildman family and redecorated by the Webb family.

The chapel still has regular Sunday services which are open to the public.

The chapel holds a maximum of 70 people.
