[ELH] Bristol's medieval churches: St John's Chapel

This chapel served St John the Baptist's Hospital in Redcliff Pit, founded by the Berkeley family by 1190 for the relief of the poor. John the Baptist's association with healing arose from a confusion with St John the Evangelist in regard to the Pool of Siloam in Jerusalem.
