So well preserved.

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.

The chapel is rarely open so when it is, do yourself a favour and pop your head around the door. Its quite beautiful inside and the windows burst into life from the inside out. There's always someone around to answer your questions and the history of the chapel is fascinating

A friend who was baptized at this chapel told me that it is one of only two chapels on bridges in England. Whether she's right or wrong, I'm not sure, but it's the only one I've come across knocking about England for the last forty years. You can no longer go in (as far as I know), but it's always...

I've been waiting to go in this building for ages and it was a nice little gem of a building. The people there were available to answer any questions you had. The under bit was very historical and amazing. Would definitely come here again when open. Amazing!!

I took the train from Rotherham to Wakefield, with the primary intention of seeing both the Hepworth Gallery and the Chantry Chapel of St Mary but, by the time I had finished at the gallery, it had began to rain. I only had the chance to take a brief look at the chapel and my photographs don't really do this... More

Chantry Chapel was used to allow travellers to rest and pray before entering the city. I believe,(although I could be wrong) that it is one of only two remaining in the country. the chapel is normally open once a month when Sunday morning worship is conducted here in conjunction with the cathedral sevice. the chapel can be open by special...

Not open very often, but a fine, little gem off the Doncaster Road. Went there for a talk on medieval plays in Wakefield and it was an excellent setting. Some of the interior stonework is naturally worn, but it's in fine condition considering it's age.

This wonderful chapel is situated in the middle of the old chantry bridge above the river,if you can go to one of the services that take place as it is kept locked at other times. once you are inside you will be struck by its intimate serenity. I think it is only one of three left in this country
