There are very few Chantry chapels, and even fewer located on an ancient bridge. Unfortunately, as most reviewers have noted, it is seldom open. My abiding memory is looking back and seeing the stained glass illuminated through pale winter sunlight. Walking distance from Station, Cathedral...More

This chapel on the bridge in central Wakefield is only open on certain days, contact the council for opening dates, we visited and was pleasantly surprised, it did make you think of how life was back when this was the only bridge and no cars
