Waddingworth, Lincolnshire, St. Margaret. Dave Hitchborne.
Wadebridge, Cornwall,
St. Petroc (C) at Egloshayle. Curiously, Pevsner has it as "St Conan (?)". This is perhaps because of the presence of St. Conan, a Mission Church, in Wadebridge, across the river. To add to this, the church notice board doesn't give a dedication. SX 000 719. Link1. Link2. Methodist Church at Egloshayle - for sale in 2010. Photo taken from across the river. SW 992 724. Both Steve Bulman (2010). The Christian Centre. SW 988 723. Graeme Harvey (2011).
Wadenhoe, Northamptonshire. The church has two dedications - St. Michael and All Saints, and St. Giles. Two additional views - 1, 2.
A curious feature is this blind arcading in the exterior north wall of the tower. Howard Richter has advised that Pevsner, in his Northamptonshire, notes that there are a number of churches with broadly similar features, and suggests that they were simply a local fashion. The other churches mentioned are Brackley St. James, Burton Latimer, Caldecott, Higham Ferrers, Mears Ashby, Moreton Pinkney, Raunds, and Stanwick. Two interior views - 1, 2, and the font. TL 009 833. All David Regan (2016). Link. Grade II* listed.

Built post-1892, it shows as School on the 1914 OS map, and is included in a list of Methodist Chapels as Wesleyan in 1940. The 1956 O.S. map names it as Chap., and it is marked with a cross on the 1961 edition. Date of closure is not known. SE 004 826. Howard Richter (2015).

A distant view of the old church of All Saints, aka the Ramblers' Church. David advises that the village was re-sited at the bottom of the hill, a new church built (St. Mary), and the old church abandoned to its fate. The church can only be reached on foot, and it was ramblers who raised the money for its upkeep, hence the nickname. David Regan (2016). Link. Grade I listed.

Waltham, Lincolnshire, All Saints. Dave Hitchborne. Link. Methodist Church. David Regan (2013).
Waltham Abbey, Essex, the Parish Church of Waltham Holy Cross. Not the Abbey, as this has always been the parish church. The adjacent abbey was a victim of Henry VIII, but the parish church was unmolested. Originally a church was dedicated here in 1060 by the later King Harold. The core of present church has more or less the same footprint. Two further views - 1, 2, and an interior view, all Christopher Skottowe (1964). Christopher Skottowe has an old album containing (among other things) a sketch of a church, which has previously been in the Unknown section. Though there's no indication of the date of the sketch, it is probably from late Victorian times. Simon Davies has identified it as Waltham Abbey in Essex, before Victorian alterations increased the height of the tower. Two additional views - 1, 2, interior view, the altar, and a fine monument. King Harold is allegedly buried here - a stone marks the site. All Peter Morgan (2015). Link1. Link2. An old engraving of the church can be seen here and (coloured) here.

The books are Pictures of Unitarian Churches by Emily Sharpe (1901) and the 1914 edition of Nonconformist Church Architecture by Ronald P. Jones M.A, (Oxon), and the images are reproduced by kind permission of James Barry of Unitarian Church Headquarters. My appreciation also to Mike Berrell for his efforts in this regard.

ST 4259 7315. All Carole Sage (2016).

Wanstead, Greater London, Christ Church. From an old postcard Bulman Collection. Wanstead Parish Church is not identified by name on this old postcard (Bulman Collection), but it is almost certainly of St. Mary, the description of which in Betjeman is very close to the picture. (Thanks to Graeme Exall for confirming that this is indeed St. Mary, and for this Link.)

Warden, Northumberland, St. Michael and All Angels. The rather attractive lych-gate.

Warmsley, West Yorkshire, dedicated to St. Peter. Bill Henderson.
Warmsworth, South Yorkshire, St. Peter (1939-42). SE 553 007. Bill Henderson. Grade II listing, which says that the church was built with the proceeds of the sale of an earlier "Victorian" church. This was at SE 5511 0123, and a "Streetview" shows the site with gravestones. In fact, as Howard Richter points out, although the previous church was indeed Victorian, or perhaps a little earlier, it had succeeded a medieval one, as registers commence in 1594, and the record of rectors commences in 1225. A directory of 1889 mentions it as a "modern" building, and says that there were building works in early 18th century, and on several occasions in the 19th. As the "Victorian" church was only demolished in 1946-8, there must be photos or illustrations somewhere.

Weare Giffard, Devon, Holy Trinity. Previously (and for a long time) in the "Unknown" section. Roger Hopkins found a box of Victorian negatives, and the only clue to the whereabouts of the photos was one negative labelled "Moortown Church". Despite his searches through the numerous Moortown's in Britain and Ireland, he'd been unable to identify the church, and despite much effort by other keen church detectives, its identity remained undiscovered for a long time.

Whether this is so or not, map evidence shows that the building stood to the right of that wall, running across the later driveway. One piece of evidence that the wall may not have been part of the church comes from Kelly's Directory of 1898 which says that it was a wooden church.

Whixall, Shropshire, St. Mary. As Sandy points out, the old gravestones built into the wall suggest that this is a re-build and he supplies a date of 1869. The listed building text says 1867, perhaps meaning the commencement of building work. Interestingly, the listing text says that the old church, which no longer exists, was a quarter of a mile away, so either the gravestones were moved, or the new church was built on a pre-existing graveyard.
