This old postcard (from Kevin Gordon's Collection) is clearly marked "Arksey Church", but it bears no similarity to Arksey church in South Yorkshire, and neither he nor I could find another Arksey. That indefatigueable detective Janet Gimber has identified the church as St. Mary, Sprotbrough, so this is a faulty postcard.

Possibly no longer in use. The previous building, Wesleyan, which was built in 1833, was on Guggleton Street. This was later re-named as Station Road, so Howard Richter speculates that the Congregational Church may be built on the site of the Wesleyan building (or even be substantially the same building), though has been unable to find any proof of this.

Stewarton, East Ayrshire, St. Columba (CoS) on Lainshaw Street. Built in 1696 (date-stone), probably on the site of an earlier church, it was originally known as Laigh Kirk. It had a change of name when the church joined with the congregation of the Cairns United Free Church in 1962. Three additional views - 1, 2, 3. NS 419 457. Link. Some history (pdf) here. Grade B listed. The site (the smaller house in the terrace, towards the right of the photo) of the demolished United Presbyterian Church on Main Street. Maps reveal the following history - 1857 and 1896 "U.P. Church", 1910 "U.F. Ch.", and 1964, "U.F. Church". Howard considers that this is likely to be the Cairns United Free Church, in which case it was founded in 1776, with a new church replacing it in 1854 (source). The location of the earlier church is so far unknown, but it will be the latter church whose site is on the photo. By 1991 it had been demolished, and re-developed for the housing now on the site. NS 4216 4604. Roman Catholic Church, north of Lainshaw Street at NS 419 457. One on-line resource says it was built in 1974, which contradicts the O.S. map of 1964, which shows "Our Lady and St. John RC Church" on the same site - although possibly the 1974 date refers to a re-build. U.R.C. (formerly Congregational). NS 4189 4607. John Knox Parish Church (1841, CoS) on Main Street. Like so many Scottish churches, it has a history of denominational changes. Built in 1841-2 as Church of Scotland, it separated as part of the schism of 1843 and became a Free Church. In 1900 it became known as John Knox Free Church, before re-joining the Church of Scotland in 1929 (a good history here). Grade B listed. All © Howard Richter (2014).

TQ 335 858. © Mehmood Naqshbandi, and reproduced from his website Muslims in Britain. One of Judy Flynn's postcards (previously in the Unknown section) - labelled as St. John the Evangelist and Queen's Road. From the publisher on the back (Hickox & Son, Finsbury Park (London)), Judy thinks that this is the demolished church of St. John which stood on Gloucester Drive and Queen's Drive, Stoke Newington, now replaced by a modern church, visible on Google Earth here. Certainly the boundary wall looks similar. Can you confirm Judy's suspicions? Brian Curtis suspects the identification is sound, and has supplied links to the following evidence - description (the central tower which it mentions must be hidden by the gable end), maps on http://www.old-maps.co.uk/maps.html show that the situation of the church at the junction of the two roads is identical, and the information that the Queen's Road was changed to Queen's Drive after WWII. Janet Gimber concurs, and has drawn my attention to the Google Earth aerial view, and old maps, which leaves no doubt.

Stubbings, Berkshire, St. James the Less (1849-50). The postcard of "Stebbings" Church had been on the website for rather a long time, listed under Stebbing, Essex. The Rev. Tim Goodbody, of Stebbing, has been in touch to say that this isn't his church. I listed it under Stebbing rather than Stebbings because I couldn't find any trace of a Stebbings place-name in the UK, and under Essex, because I could find only one Stebbing. We have Sue Hedger to thank for solving this mystery - it is in fact Stubbings, in Berkshire. Sue says she isn't aware of a name change, so this has to be lain at the door of the postcard manufacturer for getting it wrong! From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. Another postcard view, this one from Judy Flynn's collection, and postmarked 1909. SU 850 816. Link1. Link2 (See photos under "Remembrance Sunday").
