Chapel of St Mary’s on the Bridge

The Bridge Chapel is one of the few chapels of its age remaining in the country and has records that date back to the beginning of the 14th Century.

In days gone by, travellers leaving the city would stop at the chapel and say a prayer to ensure that their journey was a safe one.

The Chapel stands beside the 18th century St Mary's Bridge, which replaced a medieval bridge to which the chapel was originally attached. The precise date when the first bridge chapel came into existence is uncertain, but it is likely to have been around the late 13th to the early 14th century, when it was built on the same site as the present chapel.
