Minsden Chapel, Whitwell Road, Langley - North Hertfordshire

Ruined remains of a small C14 two-cell church with bellcote. Built of flint rubble with stone dressings, plastered externally. Probably a ruin by end of C17. Church was dedicated to St Nicholas. Inspection showed loss of voussoirs from openings and general erosion of fabric which requires consolidation. The church has now been declared redundant and is in private hands. Historic England are discussing the management of the site with the new owner.
