This is a view inside the Chapel of St. Mary on the Bridge in Derby.

Dating from the beginning of the 14th century and restored in 1930, this building is one of only six bridge chapels remaining in England.

On the wall you may notice the hagioscope window.

The east window was designed by Mary Dobson in 1973. The candlesticks and the altar were designed by Ronald Pope in 1973. The frame in the centre of the altar surrounds a fragment of a mediaeval figure of the crucified Christ believed to be of Flemish origin. The figure was donated by Miss Alwyn Morley. In the far corner of the Chapel is a wooden statue of Our Lady of Walsingham. This was carved by Anton Wagner in the style that is common in the village of Oberammergau in Bavari.

At the far end of the Chapel above the entrance is the gallery. This structure was completely renewed during the 1930s restoration but a gallery has been here since the reign of Charles II.

This chapel is often open for the Heritage open days held in September.

St Marys Bridge (Grade II* listed) which replaced the original medieval bridge was designed by Thomas Harrison of Chester and was built between 1789 and 1794. The bridge chapel retains one of the original arches from the medieval bridge underneath it.
