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 in the papers (Aston Cantlow v Warwick) 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 6051 5035. Both Chris Emms (2010). Two additional views - 1, 2, both Karel Kuča (2019). Link. Grade I listed.

Coole Pilate, the former United Methodist Chapel, now converted to residential use. The date-plaque for 1850 declares it to have been a United Methodist Free Church.

Link, which says it was closed in the 1980's. Howard Richter advises of an earlier small P.M. chapel, built in 1832. Mentioned here, it may be the same building which shows in later 19th century maps as U.F.C. This later became a Church of England Mission Room, bought in 1915, and as shown on a 1964 O.S. map, but it has since been demolished and a house built on the site. The National Archives hold records for 1940-1969. A Streetview of the house shows an older boundary wall, and this is consistent with the boundary shown for the Mission Room on O.S. maps, and so is a likely remnant.
Crewe Green, St. Michael and All Angels. Gervase N. E. Charmley (2010). Three additional views - 1, 2, 3, all Dennis Harper (2019). Link. The former St. Andrew (Methodist, originally Wesleyan) has been converted into housing. Gervase N. E. Charmley (2010).
