Lady chapel


A chapel dedicated to Our Lady, often attached to the choir of a church at the end opposite the nave, or forming a separate small building joined to the church by a covered passage. In the English cathedrals it was usually a deep chapel prolonging the main axis to the east; in France the largest and easternmost of the chevet chapels, i.e., the crown of chapels.
