Phil Kerton has advised of some churches missing from this webpage - Christchurch on North Street (a chapel of ease to St. Mary's), and cemetery chapels in the Old and New cemeteries. Can you provide photos of these?

Baptist Chapel. Gerard Charmley (2011).

Castle Street Methodist Church, built as Wesleyan in 1829. SO 299 141. Gerard Charmley (2011). At the rear of the church hall (the single storey building at the left of the previous image) is this large mural, Martin Richter (2012). Link1 - the home page has a photo which will cycle through to interior views. Link2. Grade II listed - link.

Castle Street U.R.C., formerly Congregational (Independent). SO 299 141. Gerard Charmley (2011).

Christadelphian Chapel. Gerard Charmley (2011). Phil Kerton has advised that this was originally a Salvation Army meeting hall.

Gateway Christian Centre. Gerard Charmley (2011).

Gospel Hall. Gerard Charmley (2011).

Holy Trinity (CiW, 1910). Another view. Both Gerard Charmley (2011). Link.

The Meeting Hall may be a former chapel. Can you confirm? Gerard Charmley (2011). Phil Kerton has advised that this could be the building on the corner of Prospect Road and Pant Lane (Google Earth confirms this), and is therefore probably the former Christadelphian meeting room (active until at least the 1960's) .

Mortuary Chapel. Gerard Charmley (2011).

The derelict Providence Chapel. Gerard Charmley (2011).

Rehoboth Church (Charismatic). SO 299 141. Gerard Charmley (2011).

The remains of St. John. Gerard Charmley (2011).

St. Mary's Priory Church. Another view. Graeme Harvey. Another view, and an interior view, both Gerard Charmley (2011). Link.

St. Michael (R.C.) undergoing repairs. Gerard Charmley (2011).

Salvation Army, formerly Tabernacle Primitive Methodist Chapel (1850). Gerard Charmley (2011).

Tin Tabernacle. Gerard Charmley (2011). Janet Gimber advises, after consulting old maps, that this was built sometime between 1881 and 1901 as a Mission Room. By 1965 it appears as St. Helen's Church (CiW), and it is also labelled similarly on the next map of 1973-1986. The nearby St. Helen's Road pre-dates the Mission Room. Perhaps an older St. Helen's went out of use, and the congregation moved into the Mission Room. Phil Kerton has advised that this was a chapel of ease to Holy Trinity Church.

Whitefield Presbyterian Church. Another view, showing the schoolrooms. Both Gerard Charmley (2011). Link.

Unidentified former Chapel. Gerard Charmley (2011). Janet Gimber advises that this was built as a Presbyterian Chapel. By the time of a 1920 map, it was a "club", and shows on later maps as a "hall", before becoming a commercial property.
