The thorough restoration of St Bartholomew's Chapel, built in 1744 has allowed 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.
