Abbeytown, St. Mary. The parish church is the remaining fragment (the nave) of Holme Cultram Abbey (Cistercian). It was severely damaged by a fire on 9 June 2006. NY 1772 5082. Steve Bulman. Link. Grade I listed. Methodist Church. NY 1726 5076. Steve Bulman. Link. The church was offered for sale in late 2018 or early 2019, and the Estate Agents notice, which says it was built in 1869, includes photos of the unaltered interior.

Ambleside.
Anthorn,

Arthuret, dedicated to St. Michael. NY 3794 6767. Steve Bulman. Another view, Bill Henderson. Link. Grade II* listed. Numerous churchyard monuments are listed separately - they can be found here.
Askham, St. Peter. NY 5181 2386. Philip Kapp. Grade II* listed. Several monuments in the churchyard are listed separately - they can be found here
Aspatria, St. Kentigern. Steve Bulman. NY 1471 4192. Link. Grade II* listed. Some related churchyard listings can be found here. The Methodist Chapel (1929) on North Road and the A596. This chapel was built with the help of a grant from J. Arthur Rank (who owned the cinema chain), who was a Methodist. NY 1484 4189. Peter Ostle. A 2017 Streetview. The former Independent Chapel on Outgang Road is now in commercial use. It can be seen on a 2011 Streetview here. NY 1434 4185. The demolished Primitive Methodist Chapel stood right next to the railway line at NY 1518 4204. The My Primitive Ancestors entry supplies dates of 1895-6, with closure "by 1980". The site can be seen here on a 2011 Streetview. It stood to the right of the house with the green door. The 25" O.S. map of 1900 shows a Baptist Chapel of 1896 on the corner of Queen Street and an apparently un-named road opposite Harriston Road. The site can be seen on a 2017 Streetview. NY 1505 4197. I've not been able to find a photo, or the date of closure or demolition.

Backbarrow, Hebron Hall (Open Brethren) on Brow Edge Road. Kevin Price (2020). Link.
Bampton
, St. Patrick. Two interior views - 1, 2, and the early font (on a modern stand). NY 5215 1804. All Dennis Harper (2012). Link. Grade II* listed. The former Wesleyan Chapel (now a private residence). NY 5181 1768. Philip Kapp.
Banks, Primitive Methodist Chapel (1874). NY 5656 6482. Bill Henderson. The My Primitive Methodist website entry calls this Calees P. M. Chapel, and gives a closure date of 2004. A 2010 Streetview.
Barbon, dedicated to St. Bartholomew (1893). SD 6306 8247. Steve Bulman. Another view, Alan Blacklock, and another, Bill McKenzie (2011). Another view, interior view, a window, and two fonts - 1, 2, all Dennis Harper (2011). Link. Grade II* listed. Old maps (e.g. the 1898 25" O.S. map) show a disused church immediately north of the present church, and in the grounds. Shown as a complete outline, and presumably still standing at the time, the Wikipedia entry says that today all that survives is the porch, now used as a shed. SD 6304 8250. I haven't been able to find a photo of the old church, and Streetview doesn't give an unequivocal view of the surviving fragment. The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, now in residential use. SD 6279 8252. Dennis Harper (2011).
Bardsea, Holy Trinity (1843). Interior view, and the East Window. SD 3010 7455. All John Balaam (2012). Link.
Barras - see Stainmore.
Barrow-in-Furness.
Barton, St. Michael. A most interesting church, with what Pevsner describes as a transverse tunnel-vault. NY 4875 2638. Both Steve Bulman. Link. Grade I listed.
Bassenthwaite, the parish church, St. Bega, stands on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake. The location is idyllic. Interior view. NY 2266 2875. All Steve Bulman. Link. Grade II* listed. St. John (1878) stands near Bassenthwaite village. NY 2290 3159. Les Strong. Another view, Alan Blacklock. Link. The 1900 25" O.S. map shows a Sunday School Formerly Church a short distance west of St. John's. Although it isn't clear which building it is referring to, it must surely be this one seen on the 2009 Streetview. This would make its grid reference NY 2278 3164. Its grade II listing dates it to 1805, replacing an earlier chapel. Bassenthwaite Methodist Church stands at NY 2295 3216. The 25" map marks it as Wesleyan, and it can (just) be seen on Streetview here. Link.
Beaumont, St. Mary. Steve Bulman. NY 3480 5929. Link1 (has an interior photo). Link2. Grade II* listed.
Beckermet, St. Brigit, which stands about half a mile SSW of the village. Interior view. NY 0149 0607. Both Jill Coulthard. Link. Grade II* listed. St. John. NY 0189 0672. Jill Coulthard. Another view of St. John, Malcolm Minshaw. Grade II listed.
Beckfoot (Eskdale), St. Catherine. NY 1759 0026. Alex Parker. Link. Grade II listed.
Beckfoot (between Sedbergh and Tebay), the former Methodist Chapel, now a private residence. Maps show it as Methodist Chapel (Primitive) in 1898, and Beck Foot Methodist Church in 1977. Another view. The date-stone for 1872. SD 6151 9654. All Howard Richter (2016). An Estate Agents sale notice (pdf) has interior views, though nothing remains to hint at its former use.
Beckfoot (south of Silloth), the former Friends Meeting House, now converted to residential use. An information board in the adjacent burial ground dates the first building on the site to "probably after 1689", with a re-build in 1745. It was closed in 1940, though was later used by a Methodist congregation until 1968, conversion following thereafter. NY 0929 4959. Steve Bulman (2018).
Beckside, St. Cuthbert - see Kirkby Ireleth, below.
Beetham, St. Michael and All Angels. Elaine Hindson. Another view.  SD 4961 7957. Philip Kapp. Interior view, John Balaam (2017). Link. Grade I listed. The 1898 25" O.S. map labels a building as Temple Bank On Site of St. John's Chapel. I think it can be seen in the background here, just glimpsed on the 2011 Streetview. SD 4969 7949. The only mention of it on-line I can find is in my transcription of an old directory - see here, but it doesn't offer anything of much help.
Bewcastle, St. Cuthbert. Steve Bulman. NY 5654 7456. Link. Grade II* listed.
Bigrigg, St. John. NX 9978 1382. Malcolm Minshaw. Link. The 1899 25" O.S. map marks a Meth. Chap. (Free Un.) on Chapel Street, at NY 0004 1334. It hasn't survived, and its site (roughly half way along the row of bungalows) can be seen on a 2009 Streetview. Link.
Birks. 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. All Tim Flitcroft (2011).
Blackford. Dedicated to St. John the Baptist. NY 3962 6248. Steve Bulman. Another view, and an interior view, both Alan Blacklock. Link.
Blawith,
the former St. John the Baptist, which was closed in 1988. It was subsequently transferred to the Churches Conservation Trust, who later decided to sell it for residential conversion (link). Another view. SD 2887 8834. Both Kevin Price (2020). The substantial remains of the predecessor church of the same dedication stands a little way to the south, at SD 2882 8823. With walls still standing several metres high, the grade II listing dates it to the 16th century, with a re-build in 1749. It can just be seen in a 2016 Streetview.
Bleatarn, Chapel of Ease to Warcop parish church. NY 7278 1375. Three further views - 1, 2, 3, all Tim Flitcroft (2011). Link. Marked on some OS maps at NY 7223 1323 is a "Place of Worship", though nothing is visible except this inscribed stone which declares "Bleatarn Chapel". By studying old maps, Howard Richter suspected that it was built after 1899, but certainly before 1915, when it is shown as Wesleyan Methodist; an article Howard has found implies 1903 (link). A local informant advised that this was a "tin tabernacle", and that it closed in the late 1980's. Both Martin Richter (2011).
Blencarn, the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (1840 - date-stone), now converted to residential use. Note the carved heads in the boundary wall - a close-up of one. Isobel White (who lives in this cottage) has been in touch to say that this head, and its companion, were carved by her father, clearly a skilled mason. The date of closure is currently uncertain, but seems to be post-1962/3, when it appears as a "+" on the OS map of that vintage. Two additional views - 1, 2. NY 6384 3115. All Howard Richter (2014).
Bolton, All Saints. A remarkable carving (attributed as Norman in Pevsner) of two knights on horseback. NY 6393 2342. Link. Grade I listed. Methodist Church. NY 6367 2325. All Philip Kapp.
Bolton Low Houses, former chapel, now a private residence. Janet Gimber advises that this was Wesleyan Methodist. NY 2375 4434. Philip Kapp. The 1901 6" O.S. map has a label for a Mission Room at Brough Hill, a short way west of Bolton Low Houses. Not indicating precisely which building is meant, Streetview reveals that the building was still standing in 2009. We can then determine the grid reference as NY 2351 4417.
Boltongate, dedicated to All Saints. NY 2296 4077. Steve Bulman.  Link. Grade I listed.
Bootle.
Bothel, an old Wesleyan Methodist chapel (1840), in the process of demolition. NY 1818 3896. Philip Kapp. Link. The 25" map of 1900 also shows a Primitive Methodist Chapel at NY 1822 3884. Not noticed by the My Primitive Methodist website, and passed by the Streetview van, this source provides a date of 1836, and the fact that it has been demolished. It stood on the right side of the lane, as seen here by Streetview in 2017. 
Bowness-on-Solway, dedicated to St. Michael. NY 2237 6265. Steve Bulman. An old postcard view from the Collection of Alan Bulman. Link. Grade II* listed. The tiny former Wesleyan Chapel (1872). NY 2247 6277. Steve Bulman. Link1. Link2.
Bowness-on-Windermere, St. Martin. Paul Brown. SD 4025 9690. Link. Grade I listed. The Methodist Chapel on Lake Road was originally Wesleyan. SD 4056 9722. Steve Bulman. Kevin Price advises (2010) that this has recently closed, and is now the Lakes Christian Centre - link, which announced in 2020 that "From 12th June 2020 Lakes Christian Centre will no longer be based in the Bowness Methodist Church", but doesn't say where they are moving to. Gospel Hall (Open Brethren, 1839) on Bank Terrace. Another view - the small sign by the door reads "Chapel House". SD 4052 9711. Both Kevin Price (2020). The cemetery on Glebe Road has a small Chapel (still in use), which probably dates from 1856, when the cemetery was opened. Another view. SD 4006 9629. Both Kevin Price (2020).
Braithwaite, St. Herbert, originally a Mission Room. NY 2320 2371. Dave Westrap. Link. The former Methodist Chapel is no longer used by the Methodists. However, Keswick's Orthodox Church (Community of St. Bega, St. Mungo and St. Herbert) holds services here every Sunday. The 1899 25" map marks this as Wesleyan. Another view. NY 2294 2361. Both Martin Richter (2011). Link.
Brampton (near Carlisle).
Brampton (near Appleby), the former Espland Hill Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, now converted to residential use. Another view. According to this source, its dates are 1866-1996. NY 6853 2309. Both Howard Richter (2014).
Brathay, Holy Trinity. NY 3621 0330. Steve Bulman. Another view, John Balaam (2017). Link1. Link2.
Bridekirk, St. Bridget (1868-70). NY 1164 3369. Steve Bulman.  Link1 - which includes numerous photos, including some of its chief treasure, a superb Norman font. Link2. Grade II listed. According to the 1902 6" O.S. map there was an earlier St. Bridget, on a slightly different site in the churchyard, at NY 1168 3371.
Brigham, St. Bridget. The tower. NY 0858 3092. Both Steve Bulman. Interior view, Jill Coulthard. Another view, Ian Lewis. Link. Grade I listed. News item (2014).
Bromfield, St. Mungo. NY 1759 4704. Pauline Robson. Another view, Elizabeth Nash. And another, Alan Tunstall. Link1. Link2 has interior photos. Grade I listed.
Brough.
Brough Sowerby, Methodist Church. NY 794 128. Martin Richter (2011). Link.
Brougham, St. Wilfrid's Chapel. NY 5276 2841. Steve Bulman. An old postcard view, from Steve Bulman's Collection. Link. Grade II* listed. St. Ninian (aka Ninekirk's), and a cross. Impressive wood carving. NY 5594 2997. Link. Grade I listed. All Steve Bulman.
Broughton (Great and Little).
Broughton-in-Furness, St. Mary Magdalene. SD 2093 8738. Jill Coulthard. Two interiors - 1, 2, and two windows - 1, 2, all John Balaam (2014). Link. Grade II listed. Some churchyard monuments and a sun-dial are listed separately, and can be found here. Methodist Church (1875) on Prince's Street, built as Wesleyan. SD 2123 8753. Steve Bulman (2014). Link.
Broughton Moor, St. Columba (1905). NY 0534 3341. Steve Bulman (2006). Grade II listed. A Methodist Church stands nearby at NY 0532 3346. Steve Bulman (2006). One further church on the 1976 OS map at NY 0503 3333 appears to have been demolished. Howard Richter has advised that it was Primitive Methodist, built before 1866 (since it shows on a map of that date), and was still standing in a map dated "1980-1990".
Burgh-By-Sands, St. Michael. NY 3287 5911. Steve Bulman. Another view, Philip Kapp. Link1. Link2. Grade I listed. Perhaps surprisingly, for a village of this size, there doesn't appear to have been a non-conformist presence.
Burneside, St. Oswald. Another view, and a door. SD 5048 9573. All Howard Richter (2011). The present building dates from 1880-1 (link), though Wikipedia says there has been a church on the site since 1647.
Burton-In-Kendal, St. James. SD 5305 7692. Elaine Hindson. The same church taken in about 1900. Anne Nichols. Grade I listed.
Buttermere, St. James (1840). NY 1760 1703. Bill McKenzie. Another view, Tom Halstead. Grade II listed.

Caldbeck, St. Kentigern. NY 3255 3990. Steve Bulman. Link. Grade I listed. Methodist Church, originally Wesleyan. Although the My Wesleyan Methodist entry dates it to 1863, it also includes a photo of a date-stone for 1832. NY 3220 4010. Steve Bulman. Another view, Alan Blacklock (2010).
Calder Bridge, St. Bridget (1842). NY 0417 0604. Dave  Westrap. Link. Grade II listed.
Calthwaite, All Saints. Steve Bulman. NY 4694 4009. Link1. Link2 (has an interior photo). Cottage Wood Centre (Methodist). It has date-stones for 1709 and 1905. Interior view. NY 4767 3889. All Kevin Price (2020). Link, and its history page, which explains that the earlier date-stone was recycled from the predecessor chapel, built as Congregational, later Presbyterian and then Wesleyan. Its precise location is apparently unknown.
Camerton, St. Peter, which stands some distance SW of the village. NY 0355 3006. O. Messina. Link. Grade II listed. News story (2020).
Carleton, the disused chapel to the Garlands mental hospital. NY 4321 5400. Steve Bulman.
Cark, the former Methodist Church, originally Wesleyan. SD 3646 7621. Philip Kapp. Its Genuki entry provides dates of 1904 - 2005. Link.
Carlisle.
Cartmel, the priory, a splendid building dedicated to St. Mary and St. Michael. Another view, and a doorway. SD 3798 7880. All Steve Bulman. Another view, David Regan (2016). Link. Grade I listed. The Methodist Chapel (O) was originally Wesleyan. SD 3790 7872. Steve Bulman. Link.
Cartmel Fell, St. Anthony. SD 4165 8807. Steve Bulman. Link (has interior photos). Grade I listed.
Casterton, Holy Trinity (1831-3). SD 6246 7969. Steve Bulman. Another view, Mrs. Janet Dalby. Link. Grade II listed.
Castle Carrock, St. Peter (1828, on the site of earlier churches). NY 5435 5541. Steve Bulman. Link. A Primitive Methodist Chapel once stood at NY 5419 5540. Built in 1899, it was closed "by 1965". Its site is now occupied by a bungalow and garden, as seen here in a 2011 Streetview. There was also a Congregational Church, as marked on the 6" 1901 O.S. map, at NY 5438 5534. Whether any or all of it survives is not so far apparent. As closely as I can judge, it stood about where the white building is in the background of this 2011 Streetview
Castle Sowerby, St. Kentigern. NY 3800 3615. Les Strong. Link. Grade II* listed.
Catherine Holme (between Great Asby and Ormside), former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (1879). It closed about 2006. Another view. NY 686 152. Both Tim Flitcroft (2011). Another view. The building retains its original sign. Both Martin Richter (2011). Link (scroll right to the bottom).
Causewayhead (near Silloth, 1845), St. Paul. NY 1310 5334. Robert Mather. Another view, Elizabeth Nash. The church was closed in 2016. Two additional views - 1, 2, two interiors - 1, 2, and the font; the church has good stained glass windows - 1, 2. All Steve Bulman (2016). Link.
Cautley, St. Mark (1847, O). SD 6912 9458. Bill Henderson. The organ. Alan Blacklock (2010). Link1. Link2. Grade II listed. Methodist Chapel (1845), originally Wesleyan. SD 6895 9417. Bill Henderson. Another view, Alan Blacklock (2010). Link. Grade II listed.
Chapel Stile (Langdale), Holy Trinity. Interior view. NY 3209 0549. Both Malcolm Minshaw. Two additional views - 1, 2, the interior and East window, all
John Balaam (2017). Link1. Link2.
Cleator, St. Leonard. NY 0142 1347. Malcolm Minshaw. Link. Grade II listed. St. Mary (R.C.).
NY 0204 1410. Dave Westrap. Link. The 1899 25" O.S. map shows a Wesleyan Chapel on Kiln Brow at NY 0166 1349. Still standing when the Streetview van passed in 2009, it can be seen here. Built in 1844, it has evidently been converted to secular use. Link.
Cleator Moor, the Wath Brow Mission Church (Anglican). NY 0278 1456. Dave Westrap. Link. St. John the Evangelist. NY 0148 1531. From an old postcard (franked 1912?), in Steve Bulman's Collection. Link. Closure news item (2014). Grade II listed. The 25" 1899 O.S. map shows a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at the junction of Earl Street and Crag Road. NY 0189 1498. Its 2009 Streetview can be seen here. The same map shows a Church on High Street at NY 0214 1495. The 25" map labels it as Presbyterian, and it can be seen in 2009 here, in use a a nursery. A Primitive Methodist Chapel is shown further along High Street, after it changes into Ennerdale Road, at NY 0229 1483. The My Primitive Methodist entry for this church says that it was closed in 1965 (built in 1865), and modern buildings erected on the site. However, what appears to be a chapel was still to be seen when the Streetview van passed in 2009. Still further along the road, at NY 0257 1466, the map shows a Congregational Chapel. Since converted to commercial use, it can be seen as it was in 2009 here.
Cliburn, St. Cuthbert. NY 5877 2449. Malcolm Minshaw. Link (has an interior photo). Grade II listed. The 6" O.S. map of 1899 shows a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at the northern end of the village, at NY 5876 2486. The Streetview van passed by in 2010, and it's photo can be seen here. This source provides a building date of 1832 with closure in 1974. It was subsequently converted to residential use.
Clifton, St. Cuthbert - my thanks to Philip Kapp for confirming the dedication. NY 5319 2705. Steve Bulman. Additional view, Chris Stafford (2013). Link1. Link2. Grade II* listed. The former Wesleyan Chapel (now a private residence). NY 534 266. Philip Kapp.
Cockermouth.
Colton, Holy Trinity. SD 3185 8605. Jill Coulthard. Link (has interior photos). The grade II listing provides a building date of 1578, with the the tower added in the early years of the following century, and transept in the 18th, restored in 1890.
Coniston, St. Andrew. SD 3025 9757. Steve Bulman. Grade II listed. At one time the Mount Zion Primitive Methodist Chapel stood at SD 3012 9724. Shown on the 1890 OS map, it seems to have closed as a church before the 1913 edition, when it shows as "Hall". The plaque from the chapel is now attached to the Bluebird extension of the Ruskin Museum, and shows the date 1859. On the latter photo the plaque is visible just above the gate, and to the right of the blue roller-door. What may be the chapel building is seen here on Google. Both Martin Richter (2015). Sacred Heart (R.C., opened 1872) stands about a kilometre south of the village on the Torver Road at Bowmanstead, at SD 2994 9673. Kevin Price (2020). Link. A former Baptist Church stands a short distance north of the Catholic Church, at SD 3003 9685. According to this source, it was Baptist, later Plymouth Brethren, then Baptist again. It closed in 1950 following a damaging flood. Another view. Both Kevin Price (2020). The former Exclusive Brethren Meeting Room stands at the rear of the Sun Hotel, and (judging by appearances) is either a carpenter's workshop or undergoing conversion. Kevin advises that the meeting closed in 1972. Kevin Price (2020).
Corby - see Warwick Bridge.
Corney, St. John the Baptist. Another view. Interior view. SD 1123 9132. All Jill Coulthard. Another view, Ian Lewis. Link (has an interior photo).
Cotehill, St. John the Evangelist. NY 4694 5018. Methodist chapel. The 1900 25" O. S. map labels this as Methodist Chapel (Free United). NY 4683 5051. Link. According to a 2020 news report, it was closed in 2018. Both Steve Bulman.
Cowgill, St. John the Evangelist (1838). SD 7560 8695. Mrs. Janet Dalby. Another view, Bill McKenzie (2011). Two further views - 1, 2, two interior view - 1, 2, the altar, and the attractive (presumably modern) font, all Dennis Harper (2012). Link. Grade II listed. On old maps, a little way to the west, is marked a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, at SD 7542 8687. The building visible on the site today (2016 Streetview) betrays no obvious signs of its Methodist roots, so whether anything remains of the chapel itself is not known.
Crackenthorpe, a small former chapel (tin tabernacle). This is probably the Primitive Methodist chapel listed in the 1940 index of Methodist Churches. From map evidence, it may have still been active in the early 1960's, but no other dates are easily discoverable. Kevin Price has advised that this closed in 1972. NY 6553 2263. Heather Powell (2014).
O.S. maps mark the site of St. Giles's Chapel at NY 6666 2174. The site isn't visible on Streetview. A source from 1848 says that remains were still visible at that time.
Croglin, St. John the Baptist (1878). NY 5745 4727. The planned closure of this church was announced in May 2009. Steve Bulman. Link. A former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel of 1877 stands at NY 5728 4720, and can be seen on a 2010 Streetview here, apparently converted to residential use.
Crook, St. Catherine, dates from 1882 or 1887, depending on the source consulted. SD 4508 9505. Bill McKenzie. Two further views - 1, 2, both Martin Richter (2011). Link1. Link2. Link3. It was preceded by an earlier St. Catherine on a different site. The main body of the church was demolished in 1887, but the tower was left standing.
SD 4499 9467. Tim Flitcroft. Grade II listed. The former Independent Chapel (1866), which now looks to be a private residence. Two further views - 1, 2. From Howard's study of old maps, it appears that it ceased to be used as a chapel sometime between 1964 and 1987. SD 462 952. All Howard Richter (2011). My appreciation to Kevin Price, who has advised that the Independent Chapel was Crook Congregational Chapel, which closed in 1966. It was latterly linked to Zion U.R.C. (Congregational) Church in Kendal.

The village once had a Primitive Methodist Chapel, which shows on the 1900 6" O.S. map, on Main Street at NY 0711 3607. I think the property now standing on the site is the white painted one here (a 2011 Streetview), behind the telegraph pole, or it may possibly be the adjacent bungalow. The My Primitive Methodist entry dates it to 1856, and the closure would seem to have been between 1960 and 1967.

The village also had a Primitive Methodist Chapel, at SD 7033 8712, as shown on the 1909 25" O.S. map. This source provides dates of 1841-1934. Whether any fabric of the building survives is not at present, apparent. A Streetview of 2016 shows the building it has been converted into, or has replaced it - the cream painted building at left here. The same map also notices Zion Chapel (Congl.) at SD 7041 8685. It can be seen on a 2011 Streetview here.

The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Flimby Brow. The W.M. Chap. shown on the 1891 O.S. map sat further back from the roadway, perhaps in line with the door at the right hand side of the building. By the time of the 1960 edition, it had been extended to its present position. As with the P.M. Chapel, it's not apparent if anything of the chapel survives.

Great Clifton. A Wesleyan Methodist Church shows on the 25" map of 1899, standing at NY 0409 2954. If any fabric of the building survives, it is unidentifiable from Streetview - it must have stood on or near what is now the driveway in this view from 2011, but stood closer to the road, perhaps even encroaching on today's pavement. Its My Wesleyan Methodists entry dates it to 1845. At some point it was replaced by a new chapel nearby, at NY 0400 2958. Certainly it was in use in the 1980's. It can be seen in a 2009 Streetview here, and there are also photos (including the interior) here. A 2019 news item shows that it was still active at that time. The date of change from the old building to the new is not known as yet.

Great Orton. Dedicated to St. Giles. NY 3290 5429. Steve Bulman. Link. Grade II* listed. Old maps mark a Wesleyan Methodist Church at NY 3286 5440. Now demolished, it stood where the car parking area is on the right, here, on a 2009 Streetview. I suspect, from looking at old maps, that it was a pre-existing building, adopted by the congregation between 1895 and 1900, and vacated by 1925. The building seems to have survived until at least 1975, so there should be photos out there.
Great Salkeld, St. Cuthbert. Steve Bulman. NY 5516 3677. Link. Grade II* listed. A sun-dial, war memorial and grave slabs in the churchyard are listed separately, and they can be found here. A Methodist Church stands south-west of the village at Salkeld Dykes, at NY 5456 3652. Built as Wesleyan in 1832, it can be seen here in a 2009 Streetview. Link. This source refers to a vanished Presbyterian Chapel,
which it says was built circa 1710, rebuilt in 1750, replaced by a new building in the village in 1876, and closed in 1953 and converted to residential use. There is a photo of what must be the C18 building here (in a 1908 scholarly document). I've been unable to determine if it survives. The chapel in the village is marked on the 6" 1900 map at NY 5506 3693, and marked as "U.P. Chapel". Its 2010 Streetview can be seen here.
Great Strickland, St. Barnabas (1870). NY 5620 2300. Steve Bulman. Link (has interior photos). Grade II listed. The Wesleyan Methodist Chapel as marked on the 1898 25" O.S. map at NY 5562 2291 has evidently been converted to residential use, as can be seen here in a 2009 Streetview. According to this source it has dates of 1887-1980's. The same source also mentions a Quaker Meeting House, built in 1681, and an Independent Meeting House attested to in 1684. This webpage has a drawing of the Quaker building, but Streetview hasn't passed where I suspect the building stands. I haven't been able to discover anything else about the Independent Meeting.

Hallthwaites, St. Anne (1854). This source says that it replaced earlier churches "across the road", but since the present church stands at a junction, it's not possible to pinpoint the earlier site. SD 1780 8552. Jill Coulthard.

Haverigg, St. Luke (1891). SD 1576 7868. James D. Thomas. Link1. Link2 (has an interior photo). The 6" O.S. map of 1900 shows two chapels in the village, one of which is identified as Primitive Methodist on the 25" map of 1898. Now demolished, a car park occupies the site, and it can be seen here on a 2011 Streetview. Its My Primitive Methodists entry which says "closed by 1980" has a photo of the chapel. SD 1603 7871. A house now stands on the site of the other chapel, and it can been on this 2011 Streetview. This source mentions Baptist, Bible Christian, and Wesleyan Chapels in the village at one time or another, but nothing which enables the identification of the chapel shown on the map.

My Wesleyan Methodists entry calls it West View W.M., and dates it acquisition to 1856, and suggests it was a pre-existing building rather than a new build. Certainly (as they say), it's an unusual building for a Cumbrian chapel - see it here on a 2009 Streetview.

Methodist Chapel on Chapel Lane, built as Wesleyan in 1828. The porch is evidently a later addition, as it partially bisects the worn date-stone - 1, 2. Another view. NY 6384 2566. All Howard Richter (2014). The Memorial Hall stands on the site of a small Independent (Congregational) Chapel, built before 1871, when it appears on a map of that year. Disused on the map of 1898, and Parish Room in 1913, the chapel stood further back from the road than the current building line. Enlargement, perhaps involving demolition, occurred in the 1920's, but it is interesting to speculate whether the chapel survived all this, and still stands, surrounded by the newer building works, and seen here, with the finials on the ends of the ridge-line. Another view. NY 6395 2575. All Howard Richter (2014). The former United Methodist Chapel at NY 6385 2579 first shows on OS maps as Bethel Chapel (New Connexion) on the edition of 1871. It became Bethel Chapel (United Methodist) after the 1898 edition and before the 1913 edition. It had been converted to residential use before the 1971-2 edition. The chapel railings seem to have survived until at least 2010 - see this Google Maps image. Howard Richter (2014).

The Methodist Church (1871) on Main Street was originally Wesleyan. A 2010 Streetview. NY 5543 4139.
Knock, the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, now converted to residential use. The date-stone is slightly unclear, but certainly 187?, perhaps 1876. The date of closure is currently uncertain, but seems to be post-1962/3, when it appears as a "+" on the OS map of that vintage. NY 6807 2699. Sadly, there were fatalities in a recent (2018) fire here, which also severely damaged the building. Newspaper report. The former Mission Room (1905), now in use as the village hall. It seems (from map evidence) to have ceased as the mission in the years to either side of 1960. Another view. NY 6798 2707. All Howard Richter (2014).

Lamplugh, dedicated to St. Michael. A William Butterfield church of 1870, though built on the site of an earlier church. NY 0886 2080. Steve Bulman. Another view, Chris K. (2007). Link. Grade II* listed.

Lazonby, St. Nicholas. NY 5492 3976. Steve Bulman. Link. Grade II listed. The 6" O.S. map of 1901 shows two chapels, Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist. The former Methodist Church, originally Wesleyan, seen here in a 2009 Streetview, stands at NY 5468 3958. Its My Wesleyan Methodist entry provides dates of 1850 after 1980. The former Primitive Methodist Chapel on Scaur Lane stands at NY 5467 3946, and can be seen here, also in 2009. A building date of 1847, and sale in 1946 are provided by its My Primitive Methodists entry.
Levens, dedicated to St. John Evangelist (1824-7). SD 4852 8577. Steve Bulman. Another view, and an interior view, both Tim Hollinghurst (2011). Grade II listed. Levens Methodist Church (1892) was originally Wesleyan. SD 4876 8615. Philip Kapp. The church website has an interior view. The 1892 chapel had a predecessor of 1795, on what is now Old Chapel Lane (off Levens Lane). It isn't marked on maps available to me, but Old Chapel Lane is at circa SD 4870 8628. The Streetview van hasn't passed by, but a photo is available here.
Lindal-in-Furness, St. Peter (1885-6). SD 2493 7583. Grade II listed. The former chapel (now a private house) on Ulverston Road, which Janet Gimber advises was Wesleyan Methodist. Its Genuki entry provides dates of 1871-1985. SD 2497 7575. Both Philip Kapp. The 25" O.S. map of 1913 shows a Christians' Meeting House, at SD 2491 7609, on Pit Lane.

Little Asby, former church. Another view. The adjoining property is "The Manse". NY 6984 0966. Both Martin Richter (2011). Kevin Price has advised that when it closed in about 1965, this was Little Asby Congregational Church. In the late 1960's it was being used for motorcycle repair and storage, but is now a residential/holiday let. O.S. maps indicate the site of St. Leonard's Church a short distance away at NY 6990 0962. The best that can be said from the 2010 Streetview is that it stood in the field behind the farmhouse or adjacent barn. Its Genuki entry says it was "closed before 1831".
Little Blencow, Methodist Church (1877). This source says it was Wesleyan. NY 4537 3277. Steve Bulman (2010). Grade II listed. A barn at Blencow Hall is listed as Grade II, and is described as a former private chapel. It can be distantly seen on a 2009 Streetview here, dead centre, with the central window. NY 4500 3262.
Little Broughton - see Broughton (Great and Little).

The 1900 25" O.S. map shows a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at NY 0546 2911. The My Wesleyan Methodists entry (includes photos) calls it Bridgefoot W.M. Chapel, and dates it to 1867, closing in 1966.
Little Langdale, Mission Church (1865). Two further views - 1, 2. The gable-end view shows the bell and date-stone. Note also the cross picked out in differently coloured slates. Older maps show that the date must refer to the building of a school, converted to a chapel at a later date. NY 3154 0344. All Martin Richter (2011). Link1. Link2.

The former Methodist Church stands at NY 3806 6846. The 1900 25" O.S. map labels it as Methodist Church (Free United). The building can be seen here from Albert Street, and here, from English Street, both on 2016 Streetviews. A News item about its 2019 closure includes a photo. St. Andrew (CoS) off Bridge Street is a former United Secession Church (later United Presbyterian) of 1834. Set well back from the road, some photos are available here. NY 3788 6886. Grade II listed. Marked on the 25" map is a Chap. on Netherby Street. This must
be the Scottish Presbyterian chapel of 1799 mentioned here. It survives (or was replaced by a building with the same footprint), and can be seen on Streetview here. NY 3794 6875.

New Cowper, the site of the demolished Congregational Chapel (in the far left corner of the field). According to the Wikipedia entry for New Cowper, the chapel was built "between 1883 and 1906" and demolished in the 1970's. Map evidence shows that it was built before 1900, as a map of that vintage shows it as "Congregational Chapel". I've been unable to find a photo of it on-line. Circa NY 122 456. Steve Bulman (2018).

Previously in the Unknown section, in which it languished for years, this Victorian silver box belongs to Peter Cameron. Note the tower design. Rob Robinson proposed St. Bees Priory in Cumbria (properly the Priory church of St. Mary & St. Bega), and offered the following link in support - link. I thought the suggestion a good one, and Peter has since drawn my attention to this page, and in particular the right-hand illustration towards the top, which may well be the source used for making the silver box.

Uldale, St. James, which sits about 3/4 of a mile distant from the village.
