The Guild Chapel
The Guild Chapel
The Guild Chapel, on Chapel Lane, was first built in 1269 by the Guild of the Holy Cross, a group of wealthy citizens who also built the adjoining Guildhall and Almshouses. During the 15th century, Hugh Clopton, a member of the Guild who became a Lord Mayor of London, largely rebuilt the Chapel.

The chapel is one of the town's oldest buildings and was granted to the Crown following the suppression of the guild by King Henry VIII. It is a grade I listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 366198 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
