The Churches of Britain and Ireland
The Collegiate Church of the Holy Cross and the Mother of Him who hung thereon. The church, built on the site of a pre-Norman Conquest cathedral, is largely of 15th century work, but there is some fabric of the 12th and 13th as well.

Although marked on an O.S. map as a church, this building on the High Street is now a nursery. Do you know its former denomination? SS 828 004. © Andrew Ross. Janet Gimber advises that this was built as Bible Christian, and opened in 1860. The congregation merged with a former Wesleyan Methodist congregation to form a United Methodist Church in 1954, and the building was sold to "the Gospel Hall people", i.e. the Plymouth Brethren. It was subsequently known as High Street Chapel.
