They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.

Hats off to you sir.

Such a sad place to go, terrible history lessons really, but things never change.

Sobering pics mate, the snowy atmosphere really does send a shiver down the spine.

      Unfortunately, I don't know any history.
      By the way, all photos were only taken from the outside, through the bars of the windows. Therefore, no access was possible - or if, only by a deep cellar window. But even that wasn't possible because of local residents. So I only took a few photos from the outside and then we drove on.

      The chapel, with ten-part rose windows, was intended simply as a funerary chapel, not a place of worship, and intended to be non-denominational. The floor plan is in the shape of a cross and the main entrance was covered for access by horse-drawn funeral carriages. Winding wooden staircases in the twin turrets gave access to the public gallery above. The octagonal steeple stands at 120 feet (36,5 meters) and was the tallest in the district when it was built in 1840.
      The architect was William Hosking, better known as a civil engineer; this (and the main cemetery entrance) remain the only surviving examples of his architectural work. The chapel is also the oldest surviving non-denominational funerary chapel in Europe.

      I didn't know if the property was still accessible. For this reason, I checked it the night before. The next day I visited the historic mansion in the early morning.
      I was very tired, but I was rewarded with some nice wall and ceiling paintings.

      I found the ruins of that chapel, located at the edge of fields, while searching on Google Earth. Because unable time and to far away from the day-route, it wasn't possible to plan it into the daily program of the tour. So I've decided to visit it at night and to take the pics with long exposure or with lighting by torch.
      From the outside, the chapel was very unimpressive. Nothing really special, but inside a dome and pillars arches could be seen.

      A large complex with several buildings. Partly the middle of demolition, so that workers prevented the exploration of the remaining area.
