Abbots Ripton, St. Andrew. Another view. Both Jim Rushton. Link.
Abbotsley, St. Margaret (K), which is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. Curiously, their website gives the dedication as St. Margaret, the canonised wife of King Malcolm III of Scotland, while the church website gives the dedication as St. Margaret of Antioch.

Another view, two of the interior - 1, 2, the chancel, pulpit, a statue-corbel in the form of an angel, a rather fine niche arch, and the font, all Chris Stafford (2013). Grade II* listed.

I can find no useful information about the chapel on the internet, except to say that old maps show that it was built before 1888, and it seems to have still been active into the 1970's. It now appears to be in residential use.
