The Leper Chapel of St Mary Magdalene

History of the Leper Chapel

This is the oldest complete surviving building in Cambridge. It was originally the chapel of the short-lived Leper Hospital at Stourbridge. It is one of the most complete and unspoilt pieces of Norman architecture in the county and a rare example of a C12 hospital chapel.
