It's an scheduled ancient monument, protected, grade II listed, I can only think English heritage/ national trust are up to something? making it safe maybe?? (otherwise someone's in bother )

nothing to do with EH, or NT, is a private burial ground part of Guyzance Hall
The Milburns use it as a family burial ground, How being owned by Rev Parker affects this ?????? but assume some codicil in agreement , for the upkeep, aSir Anthony I understand still has access

Correct. I dug a little deeper at the time (no pun intended) and the chapel was retained by the Milburns when the estate was sold off. The surrounding land being in the Guyzance Estate.

Sorry for the half a decade thread revival, but on Monday I wandered with my camera from Guyzance Mill (now with locked gate and no entry signs) to what I assume is the old wool mill by the bridge.

I inadvertently accessed the site of the chapel on the way - I say inadvertently as I didn't realise it was private land. There is a footpath from the road down to and along the river under the bridge, where there are a couple of stiles, one of which leads into the field (behind the tree in the photo below), so I rather naively just assumed it was a public footpath along the river or something, though there were no signs of anyone having used it recently - no footprints in the sand under the bridge or anything.

Only later when I emerged back onto the road did I see the "private, no entry" sign on the gate and immediately felt rather guilty, but of course it was too late by then.

I assumed it was a derelict barn or something until I got closer. I wasn't expecting it to be the remains of a chapel dating back to the 11th century.
