St Michael's Chapel is the former Anglican chapel to Lancaster Moor Hospital, to the east of Lancaster, Lancashire, England. It was built in 1866 to a design by the local architect E. G. Paley. Its architectural style is Neo-Norman. The chapel is constructed in sandstone with ashlar dressings and a slate roof. Its plan is cruciform, consisting of a nave with a west porch, north and south transepts, and a chancel with an apsidal east end. The windows are round-headed with voussoirs of alternating red and yellow sandstone. Both transepts contain a rose window above two single-light windows.
