Ninnis Bridge, or Ninnesbridge, chapel lies next to St. Michael’s Way, below Trencom Hill, so can be seen from the outside by many visitors to the area. Which is how I discovered it.

It was in the St. Ives Circuit, and after Union it was the only chapel in the Circuit besides Fore Street St. Ives.  There is an entry on Wikipedia which mentions that the original trustees in 1873 were John Quick, Wm. Quick, John Hollow, Thos. Eddy and Jas. Inch (farmers), John Curnow, Hy. James, Thos. Martin, and Wm. Bennetts (miners), Chas. Burt (tailor), Edw. Richards (grocer of St. Ives), Rich. Paynter Stevens, Math. Woolcock, Thos. Hy. Bryant (fishermen of St.Ives); and that the cost was about £150.

According to the 1940 and 1970 returns of accomodation, the chapel housed 100, and then 80.

The building was listed Grade II in 1988, and from the description was still as built. It is now in residential use, but the doors and windows are original.
