Two redundant churches and a ruined chapel

I threatened to do this in my post of 7 July.  On my alithoughts blog I’ve made three posts about churches and chapels.

Withcote Chapel was the private chapel for Withcote Hall, then became the local church for a time. It is now used only for the occasional service.

St Peters, Allexton was turned over to The Churches Conservation Trust in 2000.

The third one, Trinity Chapel,  is a ruined chapel in Derbyshire, hidden away in the woods near Brackenfield.  One of my ancestors was baptised there in 1792.  And it makes a great location for a scene in a fiction based on characters from my family in the past. No links yet though.

All provide food for thought, and different feasts for the eyes.
