Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel did NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in the 16th century, but we understand it was closed in 1856.

This was Brackenfield's chapel of ease when it was a township in the parish of Morton. It is situated a hillside about half a mile to the north west of the village, and now in ruins, being replaced by the present Holy Trinity Church nearer to the centre of the village.

The Ruins are Grade II Listed - the British Listed Buildings website describes it as a single-cell building with south porch, dating from the 16th century. It is built of "massive sand-stone ashlar" with sandstone dressings, and is roofless, but remains include twin semi-circular arches to the bellcote on the west gable, and a stone cross at the east gable. It would appear that the stonework surrounding the windows is intact, but several of them are now blocked - presumably this was a safety measure. Their account also mentions stone seats on either side of inside the porch.

It is now hidden by trees, but can be reached via a footpath from Coldharbour Lane.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
