St Robert's Chapel, Knaresborough
St Robert's Chapel, Knaresborough
This is the remains of a cave between the riverside lane and the River Nidd. St Robert was the son of a mayor of York, and was born c.1160 and died in 1218. He spent most of his life as a hermit in the cave, most of which has been eroded and washed away by the river. What remains are the access steps, altar and stone bed - too small for him to be able to lie straight.
