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 about 1367, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

This is assumed to be a chapel for private use of residents of Lypiatt Manor House.

Only The Lodge House and gateway to the Park, built about 1820 by Sir Jeffrey Wyatville for Sir Paul Baghott (Grade II) is recorded on the page relating to "Bisley-with-Lypiatt" on the British Listed Buildings website, yet according to the PastScape website, it is Grade II Listed (as is Lypiatt Park) The Pastscape account provides the information that the Chapel was built about 1367, with early to mid-16th century alterations; and comprises nave and chancel, separated by an arch with a bell turret. It was re-consecrated during World War II but no services are now held there. It is also said to have a "stone spirelet".

Of the Mansion, Kelly's Directory of 1923 says Lypiatt Park is the seat of Hubert Bayley Drysdale Woodcock esq. J.P. The mansion, an ancient and celebrated edifice, formerly possessed by the Throgmortons, is said to be one of the places where the conspirators of the Gunpowder Plot held their meetings; a letter is still extant addressed to Robert Catesbye, at Lypiatt, from William Parker, Lord Monteagle, and supposed to refer to this plot".

Denomination

Now or formerly Medieval Chapel.

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