This 'tin' chapel (corrugated iron on a structural timber frame) was erected for the Primitive Methodists in 1923.

The last service was held in 1959 and it was sold in 1965 but now appears to be totally disused.

The careful match of timber style with the barge-boarding on the main structure - and the finial - are noteworthy.

A rare dedication to St Cornelius, Linwood’s church has an Early English nave, Perpendicular tower & spire and a chancel dating to 1854.

There are two brasses; one of 1419 to John Lyndewode & his wife with their seven children below and the other to their son John, of 1421, who is depicted standing on woolpack (the family were wool merchants).

Memorial to Paul Field founder of The Children’s Family Trust.

"In 1945, our Founder, Paul Field, had a vision. He wanted all children to have the opportunity to have home where they could feel safe, supported and loved.

Paul decided to leave his work with the Waifs and Strays Society to found The Children’s Family Trust and to take into his own family the same kinds of children he had looked after previously but now, however, they were to stay within his family for life – on equal terms with his own children"

Paul Field and his wife Ruby lived at Lynwode Manor.
