Patna, East Ayrshire, the parish Church (1837) on Main Street. Two further views - 1, 2. The adjacent church hall dates from 1898. NS 4122 1064. Link. The former Free Church, on Main Street. Map evidence suggests it was built after 1896, and before 1909, when it shows as U.F. Church. It continued showing on O.S. maps at least up to the 1985 edition (United Free Church). Evidently now closed, this photo on an external website, is from 2006, and the church appears to be being looked after, so was possibly still active at that date. Another view. NS 4150 1055. It had been preceded by an earlier church at circa NS 4143 1056, which shows on the 1857 map, and it continued in use as the church hall, at least until 1962, when it is shown as such on the O.S. map of that year.

Grade II listed. Methodist Church, at the junction of High Street and Park Road. It was built as Wesleyan in 1826. Another view. Link. Grade II listing, which dates it to 1894. The former Primitive Methodist Chapel on Park Road, now in residential use. The small sign reads "Newtown Chapel", so perhaps this was what it was known as. Another view. The former Catholic Church, Our Lady of Paulton, off Winterfield Road. It appears on maps of 1971 and 1981. Older maps show a building with the same footprint (though not marked as a church), and it is obviously residential now, so was the church a temporary arrangement? All © Janet Gimber (2016).

Pen y Cae-Mawr, Monmouthshire, a ruinous General Baptist Chapel stands a few kilometres away at ST 425 972. Old maps show it as Pen Y Well Chapel. Long derelict, Neil advises that since he took these photos, the tombs in the graveyard have been re-located to a field a little distance away. Apparently there were plans to consolidate and rebuild into a private residence, but after initial works, further efforts stopped. The chapel itself must be quite old as gravestones dated back to the 18th century, and it also had a yew tree, now destroyed. Three additional views - 1, 2, 3 and an old monument. All © Neil Floyd.

A mystery photo previously in the "Unknown" section came from Mark Wilson who discovered a photo album in a skip in Dagenham of a church interior, which has a seven-light East window with rose window above. The rather awkward transition from the rose to the junction of the 2nd and 3rd, and 5th and 6th lancets are unusual. The rest of the album can be viewed here, and includes photos including the iron-strapworked door, the only exterior views. Photos are on an external website.

Preston-under-Scar, North Yorkshire, St. Margaret. A mission Room from Wensley, built in 1862. Two interior views - 1, 2, and the roof construction. SE 071 911. Link1. Link2. Another exterior view. Grade II listed. The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, now converted for residential use. Another view, and the war memorial. The memorial cannot be on its original building, as the chapel pre-dates the plaque by many years. Certainly built before 1891-3, as it shows on the O.S. map of that edition, it may even pre-date the 1856-7 6" map, though that isn't completely certain. SE 070 911. All © Howard Richter (2016).

Price Town, Bridgend, the former Bethany English Calvinistic Methodist Church (1896, re-built 1905). SS 938 921. Howard Richter advises that (judging from old maps) the chapel extension comprised the nearest section with the two arched windows on the right-hand side; the building has been converted into flats. It appears to have still been a church when the 1992 OS map was published, but the closure date is not currently known. Link. A former chapel - Janet Gimber has advised that this was probably Hope Congregational Chapel, which Howard Richter has confirmed, and he also provides the building date of 1898. The building is not marked as church or chapel on the 1992 map, so was probably closed by then. SS 938 920. Both © Gervase N. E. Charmley. Link1. Link2 (another photo, on an external site). Howard Richter also advises that there was a Free Gospel Mission showing on the 1961-2 OS map at SS 9372 9193, since demolished. The site remains vacant. Can you offer a photo or advise of one currently on-line? Link.

Grade II listed. The former Wesleyan Chapel (1858, converted 1973, as the date-stone obligingly tells us). Another view. SP 4895 5740. All © Howard Richter (2015). The former Primitive Methodist Chapel, long converted to residential use. Note the filled in round-headed window in the end wall. A photo of the chapel in the 1920's is available here, which shows round headed windows on the long side too, and a now-vanished porch. Genuki says that the church was founded in 1855, though whether this building is of that vintage is uncertain. Warwick Record Office holds documents for 1905-1933, and it seems likely that the chapel closed near the latter date. SP 4895 5790. © Howard Richter (2015).
