Tell me more!

This is the inside of the chapel of St Mary the Virgin on Wakefield Bridge which is usually only open to the public during services.

This was built as a chantry chapel in the fourteenth century. People would establish chantries by bequest so priests could be employed to pray for their souls after they were dead.

It was not unusual for buildings to be built on bridges in medieval times but it is very unusual for such buildings to survive. Wakefield Bridge has been enlarged over the years and St Mary the Virgin was extensively renovated in 1848.
