Attraction in Henley-on-Thames
Making it one of the oldest family homes still lived in today. When you visit Stonor, you will see why. It’s beautiful. Our historic building and sweeping grounds are breathtaking. And our family collection of art and artefacts is extraordinary. It’s fascinating. You can view the work of St. Edmund Campion, created when he was given refuge here in 1581. And outside sits our oldest resident: a perfectly preserved prehistoric stone circle.
Steeped in family history, the original Chapel of the Holy Trinity was built in the late 13th Century on the site of a prehistoric Stone Circle. Look closely at the southeast corner and you will see that it rests upon one of these mystical stones - a symbol of Christianity adopting the ancient site as its own.
Once inside, sunlight floods through the superb stained glass, lighting the chapel and allowing visitors to see Graham Greene’s great gift, a series of artworks called ‘Stations of the Cross’ by Jozef Janas, a Polish prisoner of war in World War II.
Only two other British chapels have always been catholic and we’re proud to say that mass and weddings continue to be celebrated here to this day.
