Bosbury, Holy Trinity. Interior view. Both © Graeme Harvey (2011). Link. Grade I listed. This building, called the Old Chapel, bears a date-stone for 1905. All of the maps I've been able to consult show this a "Meeting Room", including maps pre-dating 1905 by decades, so perhaps this was the date of a re-build.

Brampton Abbotts, the Norman St. Michael and All Angels. Two additional views - 1, 2, and the churchyard gate. At the time of Dennis' visit, the church was not being used for worship because of problems with the roof, and services were being held in a local school, and the village hall. All © Dennis Harper (2018). Link. Grade II* listed.

Chapel, which had taken over a Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion Chapel. SO 4793 2144. St. Mary (R.C.). Active at the time of Paul's visit, the Geograph entry says that it closed before 2012. SO 4803 2124. Both © Paul Wood (2000).
Brockhampton, All Saints. Another view, and the interior. A beautifully decorated altar frontal. SO 5942 3215. All © James Murray. The lych-gate and font,
both © Chris Stafford (2013). Link. Grade I listed, wherein it's dated to 1901-2. The lych-gate is separately listed, as grade II. The church was successor to Holy Trinity which stands about half a mile to the south-east, at SO 5980 3162. It was grade II listed in 1966, when it was described as ruinous, but it has since been converted to residential use - see here, which has before and after photos. It can be distantly glimpsed on Streetview, which saw it in 2009. The stump of a churchyard cross is listed as grade II.
Brockhampton-by-Bromyard, New Chapel (1790). Christopher advises that Pevsner has this church listed as "New Chapel", without a dedication; ACNY also gives no dedication. SO 684 549. © Christopher Skottowe. Grade II* listed. The "New" presumably implies that the nearby church (now ruinous) was its predecessor.

A large hospital used to stand a little way south of the village. It had a chapel, at SO 4840 4330. Much of the complex was demolished, and a housing estate built on the site. Where it stood, an area of landscaped garden, was seen by Streetview in 2009. I haven't been able to find a photo on-line.
Bury Hill, Methodist Church, which is said to date from the 1820's. It certainly pre-dates the earliest map available to me, the 1888-9. And according to the My Wesleyan Methodists entry, it also pre-dates a tithe map of 1838. SO 6412 2342. © Paul Wood (2001).

ted "for the use of the labourers who built the railway tunnel", though whether it was built as a church or for some other use isn't specified. SO 7560 4261. © Paul Wood (2003).
Cradley, St. James the Great. The stump of a medieval preaching cross in the churchyard has been converted into a sun-dial. SO 7359 4713. Grade II* listed. The sun-dial has its own (very short) grade II listing. The Countess of Huntingdon Chapel (1823). SO 7270 4713.
The former Snail Bank Mission Room, now in residential use. The building was in the process of being converted at the time of Paul's visit, and he was told that a tower had been removed stone by stone, and transported to Australia, to repair an almost identical tower that had been damaged in a storm. If anyone can add to this story I'd be glad to hear from you! SO 7144 4800. All © Paul Wood (2003).
Craswall, the ruin of Grove Villa Primitive Methodist Church. SO 2928 3443.

h. SO 314 417. © Graeme Harvey. Another view, © Paul Wood (2000). Link. The grade II* listing says it was "rebuilt 1826 and 1889 embodying fragments of the medieval church". The former Methodist Church (date-stone for 1864) on Chapel Lane. It was built as Bethesda Primitive Methodist in 1864. SO 3151 4163. A 2009 Streetview hints that it may still have been active at that time (church notice board is still displaying information) but according to this link a planning application had been raised in 2014 for conversion to a holiday let. Both © Paul Wood (2000).
Downton on the Rock, St. Giles. It was built in 1861 as a replacement for the old church, which was subsequently allowed to fall into ruin. There is a photo of the ruins here.
