Holy Sepulchre church in Cambridge

The Templar church in London is not the only medieval found church in England based on the church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem – this building in Cambridge is another.

The church was founded with the blessing of the abbot of nearby Ramsey Abbey at around the time the Templars were founded.  A confraternity linked to the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is mentioned.  Nobody seems to know what this confraternity was – which of course begs the question whether it was the Templars.

The church was renovated in the 19th century and for once, the Victorians seem to have got it right.  The work done was sensitive to the original design and the overall impression is authentic to the period.  Worth a visit!
