An ancient place of pilgrimage represented by the medieval chapel formerly situated opposite the east end of Chapel Road and the causeway, called in medieval documents the “causey of our Lady of Grace”. Henry VIII visited the chapel in 1510.

The chapel survived in part into modern times, part of the fabric being incorporated into Chapel Mill.

The site of the chapel is the north entrance to the former Town Depot, near American Wharf in Elm Street.

"Our Lady of Grace Pilgrimage" has been revived recently (2016) as an ecumenical pilgrimage walk to the site of the Chapel every August, following a service at St Mary's.
