september visit to UK

Are there any Banfield connections living in Cornwall?
I plan to visit there in September this year to see the places my ancestors came from. Charles William Banfield, my great grandfather left Cornwall at aged 2 on the Nestor and came to Tasmania - his father was William Banfield and they were born in Cornwall - in Helston and baptised and married in the Wendron Chapel.
I am interested to know if the Chapel is still standing and researching in the census records to see where they lived at the time.
If any one has any ideas of researching in UK in this area I would love to hear from you
