The Leper Chapel dates from 1125, when it was built as a place of worship for Lepers at an adjacent hospital. The building has 900 years of fascinating history, in that time being used as a bar, warehouse, dwelling for animals and a place of worship. This atmospheric building is grade I listed and contains architectural styles from several periods since 1125.

This building is usually not open to visitors.

Volunteer guide available.

Free donations are appreciated.

Please note that there is no car parking at the Chapel itself, but car parking is available on nearby streets or at Park & Ride. There will not be any toilets available at the Chapel. The nearest public toilet is 300 metres. There is a large step into the Chapel.
