The restored Shrine of Our Lady of Doncaster.
The original Shrine of Our Lady of Doncaster was part of the Carmelite friary in the town during the Middle Ages. The shrine was destroyed at the Reformation, having been identified as one of the five most important sites of Marian pilgrimage in England. In the nineteenth century the Shrine was revived at the parish church of St. Peter-in-Chains, and in the early twenty-first century the Shrine was restored by the parish with input from local Lay Carmelites.
Carmelite symbols are included in the artwork of the restored shrine.
