    Was in the area with @Dangle_Angle and @woopashoopaa so thought we may aswell take a look. And what a absolute mess this small chapel is in. There is a graveyard that is totally overgrown with only the top visible. Not a lot to see here so I wouldn't bother going out of your way to visit.heres a bit of history and a few photos...

    The Chapel was built in 1787 by the Rev Benjamin Greaves (the then curate of Bradfield) together with some of his associates. Shortly after its completion consecration was refused because builders would, for some unknown reason, not install an east-facing window. It was eventually sold at auction for the princely sum of £315 and so became an independent chapel. A decade later it started performing baptisms in 1799 and the first officer of the Titanic, Henry Tingle Wilde was apparently christened here. Notably a significant number of the 240 dead from the Great Sheffield Flood of 1864 are buried in the cemetery. This includes members the Armitage family, who tragically lost 12 of their number, including five children. Here's what the chapel looked like in the later 2016'

    There is a lot more tagging in there than the last time i popped in and that was only a few months back.

    Decent set of shots though mate, shame your main target of the day was a no-go.

    Yes looking at reports from only a few months back there's a lot graff in there. As for the other place in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger " I'll be back "

    This place is going down hill fast. If the owners really cared about this place they'd re-seal it. Real shame.

    The owners don't care.

    Apparently it's owned by a guy that owns bradfield water works and the children's home in bradfield (forgot the name). Apparently he buys listed buildings and let's them become structurally unsound then He pulls them down and sells the land. It's a shame really as loxley chapel was originally bid for by a scout group who needed a new hall, which this would have been perfect. but they were outbid by the now owner.

    Yeah it is in a bad way and will only get worse. I was quite shocked at the grave yard as some of them aren't that old.

    I live in the local area, it gets re-sealed all the time but people smash the boards in, the church never looked like this. Its a shame really.
