Chantry House

  • Description

    In July 1448, a licence was granted to establish a chantry and chantry house at Alnwick. The chantry house was built in Walkergate, the chantry itself - dedicated to St Mary - within the Church of St Michael on Bailiffgate. The chantry house provided accommodation for the chantry chaplains and served as a school; the predecessor of Alnwick Grammar. The house was last used as a school in the early 17th century and in the 18th century it was a tenement house. It survives as a ruin.
