Full description

Site of church? (S1) marks a church symbol here.
However the evidence seems to point to NHER 5145 for Lynford church. Against Lynford Hall (S1) marks 'church demolished' which he writes against the name of the parish in such cases. Is this symbol then one of his mistakes?
E. Rose (NAU), 10 September 1979.

An alternative explanation is that this could be a now demolished early nonconformist chapel.
