Medieval stones from the original façade of Chantry Chapel will be showcased to the public for the first time in nearly two decades.
The original stones date back to the 14th century and remained part of the Chapel until 1847, when they were transferred to Kettlethorpe Hall and used to create the front of a boathouse in the grounds.
But after repeated vandalism, the buildings were dismantled in 1996 by Wakefield Council, which by then was responsible for the hall.
Now, 18 years later, the council has decided to display the stones to the public once again at the Secret Garden in Thornes Park, Wakefield.
Coun Les Shaw, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport, said: “Chantry Chapel is an iconic building in Wakefield and its heritage is something we’re keen to preserve for future generations.
“The Secret Garden is an ideal location as it is already home to other local artefacts, such as a pinnacle from a restoration of Wakefield Cathedral and a column from Wakefield’s original market cross.”
The £20,000 project has been funded by the George Hyde legacy which is administered by English Heritage.
Coun Shaw added: “We are very grateful that Mr Hyde left this legacy which has enabled us to carry out this work and re-site the stones.”
Work is due to start on July 14 and take around two weeks.
