BLESSINGS

St Mary Magdalene church blessing

Blessings at Stapleford Park are held at the St Mary Magdalene church in the hotel grounds. The church was built in the 18th century by the fourth Earl of Harborough, and is an elegant example of Gothic Revival architecture. It has a tall, gracious tower, and above its entrance is a carving in the shape of a peacock's tail, the family crest.

 

The interior is cool, spacious and light, with oak pews arranged facing each other on either side of the nave. Across the west end is an oak gallery which served as the Earl's family pew, with a private fireplace for their comfort. There is pretty plasterwork on the walls and ceilings.

 

A wonderful collection of family monuments, saved from the previous church on this site, was installed here by the fourth Earl. The finest is by Rysbrack, one of the most distinguished sculptors of the 18th century, and shows the first Earl in a Roman toga, reclining and gesturing to his wife, who holds their son on her knee. Opposite is a 17th century tomb chest to Lord Sherrard, showing his eight children at prayer.

 

The church now belongs to the Churches Conservation Trust. Read more about what they do on The Churches Conservation Trust website

 

Church hire for a blessing is £500 + vat.
