The Hospital of St Mary Magdalene, also known as St Margaret’s Chapel and Magdalene Almshouses, is a Grade II* listed 14th-century building that was built by Glastonbury Abbey.
It was built around 1310 as an almshouse and other buildings were added in 1444.
What to see at St Margaret’s Chapel

There is an enclosed garden, which is a lovely spot to sit in.
