    Sudeley Castle, near Winchcombe, Gloucestershire dates from the 10th century, but the predominate style of architecture is Elizabethan. The chapel, St Mary's Sudeley, is the burial place of Katherine Parr (c.1512-1548), the sixth wife and dowager Queen of Henry VIII, and contains her marble tomb. Sudeley Castle remained derelict until 1837 when it was bought by John and William Dent, who commenced an ambitious restoration.
