Lancaster Moor Hospital Chapel

St Michael's Chapel is the former Anglican chapel to Lancaster Moor Hospital, to the east of Lancaster, Lancashire, England. It was built in 1866 to a design by the local architect E. G. Paley.[1] Its architectural style is Neo-Norman.[2] The chapel is constructed in sandstone with ashlar dressings and a slate roof. Its plan is cruciform, consisting of a nave with a west porch, north and south transepts, and a chancel with an apsidal east end. The windows are round-headed with voussoirs of alternating red and yellow sandstone. Both transepts contain a rose window above two single-light windows.[3] Since becoming redundant the chapel has been converted into flats.[2] The former chapel is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.[3]
