I understand it is open to the public on Bank Holidays, Heritage open days and other times by appointment. the guide who showed us round was... More

I have seen on pictures this building, and imagened bigger than in real. It was good to see it. Unfortunately I missed out the lake near the little church. Maybe next time.

There used to be a chapel on old London bridge alas now long gone, along with the bridge. So this gives a good idea of what it might have been like, the bridge and it chapel look slightly out of place in modern Wakefield nevertheless they have a lot of charm and are well work a look.

This is a gem not to be missed if visiting Wakefield. Right across the road from the Hepworth gallery. Any budding photographers should get some brilliant photos of the chapel, steeped in history it's my favorite place in Wakefield.

A "Must-See" if you get the opportunity - The Chantry Chapel of St Mary the Virgin in Wakefield is a real treasure tucked away on the Doncaster road running out of town opposite "The Hepworth Wakefield". The Chapel is in regular use as a place of worship, however, once in a while they open the door to visitors and we... More

Amazing, historically important gem of a building, under the care of Wakefield Cathedral. Such a small chapel, it has a lovely, welcoming atmosphere and it is easy to imagine local people coming here to worship in medieval times. I think it is a little known attraction of the area, which is a shame, as, in my opinion, makes for a... More

Cute little find of a very old church sitting on an original bridge which was a gate way in to Wakefield in C15. carefully restored by enthusiasts.

Look out for this tiny chapel being open on ArtWalk evenings. Its quaint location alone makes it worth notice. Culturally and historically important; links with Sandal Castle worth investigating.

Amazing how this has been so well preserved. I've seen it several times before and never get fed up of it. It's just a shame that it was allowed to build all around it.
