Lady Chapel at Bury St Edmunds

Ministry signs helped to explain the layout of sties in state guardianship. Sadly the sign from the Lady Chapel on the east side of the north transept of the Abbey at Bury St Edmunds has been damaged. I presume it read: ‘Ch[apel]’. Does anybody have a picture of the original sign? It is a good reminder why we need to record these signs before they disappear or are removed.

The chapel was constructed in the late 13th century over the earlier chapel to St Mary. It is adjacent to the chapel of the St Martin, and alongside the crypt.
