    The Visit
    After a very successful day in Sheffield this was our last visit of the day and at first looked like we couldnt access it.. all of a sudden everything fell into place and we were inside :)

    The History
    Loxley Chapel was built in 1787 by the Rev Benjamin Greaves who was the curate of Bradfield, along with a few friends. The chapel closed in 1993 after the parish had dwindled to an unsustainable amount. When the construction of the chapel had been completed, consecration was to be refused because the builders declined to put in an east window for unknown reasons. It was later sold at auction for approximately £315 and thus became an independent chapel. According to a religious census of 1851, an average congregation at an afternoon service was 200 and it had started performing baptisms in 1799. The first officer onboard the Titanic, Henry Tingle Wilde was reportidly christened here

    Hello, I was wondering how are you able to access the chapel? I am planning to visit tonight as i have just heard about this and feel this would be interesting for my Alevel Photography Project at sixth form. Any tips would be much appreciated aswell as other ideas of locations similar.

    Think most people will tell you on here that people don't give access details to new members.. no disrespect but you could be anyone, police, security etc etc
