HOSPITALS OF ST MARY MAGDALENE AND ST JOHN THE BAPTIST

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of the dual hospitals of St Mary Magdalene and St John the Baptist. The former was founded by 1172, the latter circa 1200. They were united in 1254. The hospital was impoverished by 1454 and in 1500 seems to have been a sinecure free chapel. It was finally suppressed in 1561. The buildings were used to create farm buildings, the chapel being reused as a barn, and a 13th century domestic building being reused as a dovecote. An 8th century carved stone over the door of the barn is thought to be from the monastery of Ethelreda at Ely, (see TL58SW3).
