All Martin Richter (2013).

Feniscowles, Lancashire, Immanuel Church (1836). John Balaam (2010). Link.
Fenny Bentley, Derbyshire, St. Edmund. A little gem of a church, the hammer beamed roof and finely carved chancel screen are seen in this interior view. The altar, east window, and the trumpet-blowing angels in the roof can be better seen here. This church has quite the most bizarre tomb I've ever seen - the couple have been carved in their shrouds!! Outside, there is a good sun-dial, dating from 1766, and a very old tomb, judging by its condition. SK 174 501. All Steve Bulman. Link. Link. Grade II* listed - link.

Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
Fenwick, East Ayrshire, the Parish Kirk. Originally dating from 1643, the church was largely destroyed in a fire in 1929, caused by the church boiler emitting sparks. Three additional views - 1, 2, 3, and an unusual feature - the sentry box, to discourage the "resurrection men"! Plaques in the churchyard explain the church's connections with the Covenanters, and weavers - 1, 2, 3. NS 465 435. Link1, see also the history page here. Link2. The former United Free Church (1843), now in use as the village hall. The 1896 map shows it as "Free Church", the 1910 as "U.F. Church" and the 1965 as "John Fulton Memorial Hall". Following the closure of the church (date so far not known), it re-opened as the Memorial Hall in 1920. Interior view. Two plaques provide a little history - 1, 2. For the orrery mentioned on them, see here. NS 4633 4363. Link. The site of the United Secession Church. NS 4631 4337. A plaque gives a little history, and what may be presumed to be an illustration of the church. The church was built between 1820 and 1846 (evidence from the plaque), and maps tell us that it was United Presbyterian "U. P. Church" in 1896, United Free "U.F. Church" in 1897, and that it had been demolished and replaced by a police station by 1958. Maps also show that the church was closer to the road than the present-day bungalow. All Howard Richter (2014). 
Fenwick, South Yorkshire, the demolished St. John. This is a photo of a photo on the notice board near the extant lych-gate. This photo Howard Richter (2013). The same notice board also has a list of incumbents, and a little history, from which - the church was built in 1851, and demolished in 1978. The graveyard within which the church stood is still in use - this view is taken looking along the north wall of the graveyard, and the church would have stood between here and the lych-gate in the background, long axis parallel with the wall. SE 590 150. All Howard Richter (2013). Link. The former Wesleyan Chapel has been converted for residential use. Another view. SE 595 162. The building probably dates from the 1896 (evidence from extremely worn date-stones - example). It certainly existed by 1905, when it shows on a map of that year, but not on the earlier edition of 1890-3, which does show an earlier chapel nearby - this doesn't seem to have survived. This chapel was home to the congregation of St. John after it was demolished, but the chapel was sold in 1993. Howard Richter (2013).
Feock, Cornwall,
St. Feock (1875-6, replacing an earlier church). SW 82479 38430. Paul E. Barnett (2015). Three additional views - 1, 2, 3, the churchyard gate, and the free-standing bell-tower in the churchyard, the only remaining survival of the prior church, all Carole Sage (2017). Link. Grade II* listed. The bell tower is also listed separately, as Grade II. The Methodist Church was built as Wesley in 1861. SW 81903 39314.  Graeme Harvey (2015). Another view, Carole Sage (2017). Link. Another view, Carole Sage (2017). Link.

Ferring, WSus., St. Andrew. TQ 094 026. From a postcard in the Kevin Gordon Collection. Link.
Ferrybridge, West Yorkshire, St. Andrew. This old church used to occupy a site on what is now Ferrybridge Power Station. It was demolished and moved stone by stone and re-built on Pontefract Road, Ferrybridge, in 1952. Photograph and text Bill Henderson. This link (of which I was advised by Howard Richter) says that the last service at the original site was held in 1952, with re-consecration at the new site in 1953. It also includes a map showing both sites, from which Howard has deduced the grid reference as SE 4795 2500 for the old site, and SE 4803 2415 for the new. The old churchyard survives (see here), and some atmospheric photos of it are here.
Ferryhill, Co. Durham, Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. The former St. Mary's and St.Martha's Chapel, now used by a firm of undertakers, was also known as St. Martha's and St. Mary's. Janet Gimber (who provided the identification) advises that the chapel seems to have closed in the mid-1990's. Both Bill Henderson.

Filton (including Northville), Gloucestershire, St. Peter. Of the medieval church, only the tower survives. The rest of the church is of the re-build of 1845, with further alterations, and an extension, in 1961. ST 60304 79199. Phil Draper. Three additional views - 1, 2, 3, a weathered gargoyle, and a sun-dial - unusual in having no numerals, all Carole Sage (2018). An old photo of the pre-extension church is available here. Link. Grade II listed. St. Theresa of Lisieux (R.C.). Both Phil Draper. The former Salvation Army Hall of 1930 stands on Filton Avenue. It seems to have been closed in the 1970's and was subsequently converted to residential use. ST 60419 78030. Carole Sage (2018). Bethany Gospel Hall. Built as Bethany Hall by Christian Brethren in the late 1950's, it originally fronted onto Filton Avenue, but following enlargement (or re-building) in the 1970's, it now fronts onto on Meadowsweet Avenue. ST 60691 79543. Carole Sage (2018). Link. St. Andrew's Methodist Church (1956) on  Gloucester Road North and Elm Park. Another view. ST 60091 78760. Both Carole Sage (2018). Link. The current Methodist Church was preceded by a church of 1928 on Gloucester Road North and Southmead Road. Two additional views - 1, 2. The building is now in commercial use. ST 60076 78939. All Carole Sage (2018). There were at least two earlier meeting places for Filton's Methodists. The earliest recorded congregation used to meet in a room above a carpenter's shop, but Carole doesn't know where this was. Its successor was a Wesleyan Chapel, a wooden building from the 1830's. After it closed, it still stood for several decades, and it shows as a "Hall" on the 1970 O.S. map, but the are was subsequently re-developed with shops and housing. The site of the Wesleyan Chapel is shown here - it stood where the roadway and grassed areas now are. ST 60392 79225. Carole Sage (2018).

Finney, Co. Mayo, Immaculate Conception (R.C.). Len Brankin.
Finningham, Suffolk, St. Bartholomew. This was previously in the "Unknown" section, as Elizabeth had bought the picture of a church, believing it to be in West Suffolk, but it proved not to be the church it was advertised as. Thanks are due to Janet Gimber for her marathon efforts - this one wasn't easy, as some of the porch details have changed since the postcard photo was taken. Link. Gospel Hall on Station Road.

Fosdyke, Lincolnshire, All Saints. This marvellous old postcard (from Reg Dosell's Collection) had to be heavily processed, and was previously in the "Unknown" section. Showing Fosdyke Old Church, it bears some resemblance to Fosdyke Fen Church, as shown here, but quite apart from the vanished tower, other details don't match - so where is it? Janet Gimber has made a good argument for it being All Saints, Fosdyke, but a previous incarnation. She quotes Genuki which states that the church was re-built in 1871, and an old source which describes the pre-1871 building - built in 1756 (no photo unfortunately) - which seems to match the old postcard. Can any Lincolnshire expert confirm this scenario?? Thanks to Garry Barr for confirming that it is indeed All Saints as Janet suspected, and for supplying this link, which has the same photo. Garry advises that the gent in the top hat was the vicar, the Rev. Basil Beridge, who largely paid for the re-building of the church following a fire in 1871. The postcard shows the pre-1871 church. The present church. TF 315 333.

Fotheringhay, Northamptonshire, St. Mary and All Saints. Intended as a mausoleum for the members of the House of York, less than half of the church survives. Zoe Martin. A view from an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. Previously in the "Unknown" section, this original drawing once belonged to an ancestor of Ken Edwards, and was thought to show a church maybe in the Maghull area (Lancashire), and was probably drawn before 1860. Many thanks indeed to Aidan Thomson, who says the church drawing itself, and the situation on the ground with the river, bears a great similarity to Fotheringhay in Northamptonshire. This makes the mound to the right in the drawing the site of Fotheringhay Castle. Further work by Janet Gimber means that this identification is now a certainty. The drawing is now thought to be about 180 years old. This old engraving (1827), is from Ken Edwards' Collection.
