The Welsh Georgian Trust is to acquire Gunter Mansion and its secret 17th-century Catholic chapel in Abergavenny thanks to grants from the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) and the Pilgrim Trust.
The Welsh Georgian Trust acquired Gunter Mansion and its secret 17th-century Catholic chapel in Abergavenny. Gunter Mansion is a Grade II* listed, largely 17th century, mansion house, formerly belonging to the Gunter family. It houses a 17th century Catholic chapel, which was hidden for over two centuries and rediscovered in the early 20th century. The chapel is an extremely rare survival of an intact recusant chapel from the 1670s.
