Parish History[edit | edit source]
Cambridge St Sepulchre is a parish in Cambridge. The church of the Holy Sepulchre, in Bridge street, commonly known as “the round church,” and the oldest of the four round churches in England, is a building of the Norman period, erected about 1101. The register dates from the year 1575. See Cambridge for more information.
The church was built by the Templars in 1101, and restored by the Camden Society in 1843. St. Sepulchre's, or the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, is on the east side of Bridge-street, and is remarkable for the peculiarity of construction of the more ancient part of it, which is believed to be the oldest remaining specimen of the circular churches erected by the Knights Templars on the model of that of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem, and to have been built in the reign of Henry I.
