Medieval bridge chapels

Bridge chapels were mostly built during the 14th or 15th centuries, they were often chantry chapels where prayers were said for the souls of the founders and benefactors of the bridge and also provided a place for travellers and pilgrims to attend mass and pray for a safe journey. Today only a few survive and to visit one is like stepping back in time!

The church did not always have an easy relationship with women's suffrage, and some churches actually became a target for radical suffragette action. Today, however, many are rightly proud of their links to the women who have made such a difference to our society.
