St Margaret Biddlesden building

 

There is a service at Biddleden at the major festivals and we welcome the choir for Benefice services. Click on the Calendar tab for details.

 

The church is in the private grounds of Biddlesden Park, so is not open to the public, unless by prior arrangement - contact the Vicar.

 

There used to be an abbey here - see link for more about the history of Biddlesden and its abbey

BIDDLESDEN - Biddlesden was home to the Cistercian Abbey of St Mary and St Nicholas, founded in 1147 by monks from Garendon, Leicestershire. Dissolved in 1538, parts of the abbey were incorporated into a house built by Sir Robert Peckham. Ruins of the Church and Abbey house were still visible in 1712, but the construction of Biddlesden House in the early 18th century resulted in the destruction of the ruins
