Full Description

Newbolt Chapel (which I suppose is that now used in the middle of the town) was annexed to the Parish by Wlater Grey, Archbishop of York, in the beginning of the reign of Henry III. The Church is quite out of the town, on the top of the hill, not far from the Fosse Way, whither the Parishoners do seldom resort (Thoroton). I am informed that they are about to build a new (church) within the village, in which there is at present a wretched chapel, mentioned and called by Throroton, Newbolt Chapel (Throsby). (1)
There is ample evidence from the sketch on the Colston Bassett terrier (3), Kinoulton terriers, a 1792 letter regarding the dismantling of the old church and chapel, directories etc that the old chapel of Newbold lay in the western half of the present village of Kinoulton, plot No 42 on the 1847 Tithe Map.

See M825 for St Wilfred's Church, M826 for shifted village of Newbold.
