The Chapel of St Mary

The Chapel in snow

The 14th century chapel of St Mary sits on the site of a Benedictine Priory, founded around the middle of the 12th century. It is a rare survival from a monastic complex: most were completely razed or incorporated into later manor houses.

 

The chapel was home to a miraculous statue which brought pilgrims praying to 'Our Ladie of Bradwell'. This is reflected in the chapel's wall paintings, which are unique in portraying a group of contemporary men and women kneeling at the end of their pilgrimage to offer gifts at a shrine.
