Baddiley, Cheshire, St. Michael. An unusual building, Chris explains:- "As is quite usual, the responsibility for repair of the chancel and nave are quite separate, though not always as visually striking as this. (Background: The rector was responsible for the chancel, and the parish for the nave. Sometimes for historical reasons a particular house in a village inherits the responsibility for repair of the chancel. A recent case (Aston Cantlow v Warwick) in the papers concerned a house-owner who found herself landed with a hefty bill for repair of the chancel. Baddiley church is no different from other churches concerning respective responsibilities". See also the Hinderwell, North Yorkshire entry. The chancel is timber-framed. Normally closed, but open on Saturdays from April onwards. SJ 605 503. Both © Chris Emms (2010). Link.

Bawdsey, Suffolk, former chapel, now in secular use. This may have been the Wesleyan Chapel as mentioned on Genuki. © Iris Maeers. Howard Richter has confirmed that this was indeed the Wesleyan chapel, and further advises that it was founded (per Genuki) in 1886. It shows on the 1904 OS map at TM 346 405. It was preceded by an earlier Wesleyan nearby at TM 3466 4022. The earliest OS map is of 1881, and this chapel is shown on it. Probably it is the one mentioned in Lewis' 1831 Topographical Dictionary, but when it was founded is presently not known. This older chapel stood quite close to the present parish church, St. Mary (link, with photos). Howard quotes the grade II listing which says that the church was C14, but mostly re-built after 1842, when a fire started by a firework let off during a 5 November display launched from the church tower severely damaged the building.

Birks, Cumbria. Two further views - 1, 2. This used to be a famous Sandemanian/Inghamite Chapel (there are transcribed records for 1754-1807). Subsequently Independent, it continued in use until 1836, but was described as "ruinous" in an 1851 directory. The recorded dates for the two sects overlap, so they may have shared the building, or the Independents may have had another building or room nearby, and later moved into the former Sandemanian chapel. Kevin Price, who has visited the building, says it is now used as a barn, and looking through a crack in the door, saw evidence of where the pulpit once was. He also advises that the font was eventually transferred to Kendal Inghamite Chapel in 1938. This short history composed from the researches of Howard Richter and Kevin Price. NY 719 151.
