St Bartholomew's Chapel, Bretton Country Park

St Bartholomew's Chapel, Bretton Country Park, West Bretton, West Yorkshire WF4 4LG

The thorough restoration of St Bartholomew's Chapel, built in 1744 has allowed Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) to open up the historic chapel to the general public on a permanent basis. Prior to its acquisition by YSP in 2001, it had been neglected for several years and was listed on the Heritage at Risk register. Since its restoration in 2013 visitors have been able to discover a part of history of the Bretton Estate as well as a gallery within the Grade II listed building.
