Chapel House, Cropwell Butler
It was quite difficult to assign a denomination to this former chapel. Although there is an 1845 date stone below the end of the valley gutter, the 1883 1:2500 OS maps does not even identify it as a chapel. The 1900 edition shows it simply as church, the 1919 version labels it Mission Church, and the 1972 version finally shows it as Chapel of St Peter (C of E). It appears that the village never had a proper church, although it nevertheless constitutes a civil parish.

I have found information LinkExternal link subsequent to writing the above, which confirms that this was built as a chapel of ease within the parish of Tithby, by a local farmer. It closed in 1879, but was reopened in 1897 as St. Peter's Mission Church. It lasted in this form until 1972, since when the function of parish church has reverted to Tithby. United services are now held in the village's Methodist Church.
