    Dating from the mid 14th century, the Chapel sits on its medieval foundations on a bridge on the River Calder. It is one of only four surviving Chantry Chapels in England today.

    The Chapel is open to visitors on selected dates during the year.

    find the old Grammar School

    by laney5 Updated Jun 1, 2005
    the original Grammar School

    QEGS, Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, is distinct from most other schools in that it was founded by Royal Charter of Queen Elizabeth I in 1591 at the request of leading citizens in Wakefield, some of whom formed the first governing body. In 1854 QEGS moved to its present site in Northgate, Wakefield. The original building is one of the oldest in Yorkshire and is found near the outside market. It is now used as an exhibition gallery.
