Chapel of hospital of St Mary Magdalene, Durham
Chapel of hospital of St Mary Magdalene, Durham
The chapel, now in ruins, was built in 1451. History, Topography and Directory of Durham, Whellan, London, 1894, quoted by Genuki LinkExternal link , tells us:
"The ruined chapel of St. Mary Magdalen stands on the north side of Gilesgate, near to the old railway station. This was the chapel of the Hospital of St. Mary Magdalen, which stood near it, and included in-brethren and out-brethren and also sisters. It has not been used for services since the Restoration, though there have been interments in the cemetery, which has now been closed for many years."
