Sat 22 Aug, Midday-3pm at Cambridge Leper Chapel.

Your chance to see inside one of Cambridge’s oldest buildings, which is not usually open to the public.

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 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.

Due to Covid-19 the Chapel had been closed and we have had to cancel our annual community event, the Stourbridge Fair. So we are really pleased to be able to re-open the Chapel and allow visitors inside. Numbers of visitors allowed into the Chapel at one time will be limited and there will be a one-way system around the Chapel.

Volunteer guide available.

Free, donations appreciated.
