The Bedford Chapel

The Bedford Chapel

 The ‘Bedford Chapel’ is the private mausoleum and chapel of the Russell Family and the Duke of Bedford. Although it is within the curtilage of St. Michael’s Church, it is under the jurisdiction of the Bedford Estates and is not open to the public.

We are often asked if it is possible to open and view the chapel, our visitors book at St. Michael's is full of such comments; the Duke of Bedford does permit a very small number of visits by professional bodies, these are arranged by the curator at Woburn Abbey.



The Heraldry of the Bedford Chapel, the hatchments, monuments, banners and windows have been recorded by The Middlesex Heraldry Society in August 1980. This outstanding and detailed work is available on their website - follow the link below ...
