Loxley Chapel was built in 1787, by Rev Benjamin Greaves, curate of Bradfield, and a few friends. It is grade 2 listed and has been on English Heritage at risk register since August 1985.

It closed in 1993. When it was completed, consecration was refused because the builders declined to put in an east window, this was possibly them running out of funds. It was later sold at auction for £315 and became an independent chapel.

According to a religious census of 1851, an average congregation at an afternoon service was 200. It started performing baptisms in 1799. One famous person baptised here was Henry Tingle Wilde, who was first officer on Titanic, who reportedly committed suicide in the last moments of her sinking.
