Chapel of St Mary Magdalen, Durham


The Chapel of St Mary Magdalen in Gilesgate in the east of the city of Durham was a hospital chapel founded in the 13th century. The chapel was largely rebuilt in 1451. After the hospital was shut down in 1546 the building continued to be used as church, but became ruined by the end of the 17th century.[1] The remains of the chapel are a scheduled monument and Grade I listed building. Today, the A690 link road runs close to the chapel, and there is a good view of the ruins from the pedestrian footbridge over the road. The adjacent Chapel Heights Student Accommodation takes its name from the chapel.
