Eyre Chapel, Newbold (1)

Recent Photograph of Eyre Chapel (1) (Newbold)

This is believed to have been built as a small private chapel for the Eyre family. It is however listed, along with St Michael and All Angels (Brimington), St John's (Dunston), St Bartholemew's (Old Whittington), Trinity Church (Newbold) St Mary and All Saints (Chesterfield), St John the Baptist (Staveley) as one of the closed churchyards for which grounds maintenance is carried out by Chesterfield Borough Council.

It is however still open for worship, and the Orthodox Community of St Cuthbert now (“now” being 2010) meet here.
