Addington, St. Mary the Virgin. Interior view, the chancel and the font.
SP 7426 2849. All David Regan (2018 & 2019). Link. Grade II* listed.
Adstock, St. Cecilia. SP 7350 3011. David Regan (2018). Link. Grade I listed. An otherwise unidentified Methodist Chapel shows on O.S. maps on Church End at SP 7356 3013. Genuki says it is/was Wesleyan, built in 1889. Streetview saw it in 2011 - its appearance makes me wonder if it was re-built at some point.
Akeley, the site of the demolished St. James the Apostle. SP 7080 3779. David Regan (2017). Photos of the church are available here and here (the latter slow to load, but it has a good history of the church). A former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel stands a little way east of the site of the church, on Chapel Lane at SP 7092 3780. It pre-dates a map of 1885. Streetview saw it in 2011.
Amersham & Amersham Old Town
.
Ashendon, St. Mary the Virgin. Two extra views - 1, 2, two of the interior - 1, 2, and chancel, and the font. SP 7051 1421. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed.
Ashley Green, St. John the Evangelist. SP 9765 0520. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. The same church in a recent photograph. Bill McKenzie. Link. Grade II* listed, wherein it's dated to 1873, by Street. A Baptist Chapel used to stand on Hog Lane, at SP 9754 0537. It's described as Baptist Chapel (General) on a map of 1887. This source says it closed in the early 1900's. Its site is shown at about the middle of a 2019 Streetview, on the left of the road.
Aston Abbotts, St. James on Cublington Road. SP 8473 2024. Bill McKenzie. Another view, David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. Old O.S. maps also show two chapels in the village, an Independent at SP 8467 2015, and a Primitive Methodist on The Green at SP 8480 2008. Both chapels survive, in residential use, and a little history for both is available here, where it says that the Independent was also later P.M. The Independent was seen by Streetview in 2011, and the Primitive Methodist in 2021 (its date-stone for 1832 can be seen by zooming-in). O.S. maps show The Abbey at the west end of the village. According to its Wikipedia entry it got its name from having been built on land formerly owned by St. Albans Abbey.
Aston Clinton, St. Michael and All Angels. SP 8793 1195. Les Needham. Link. Grade II* listed. Baptist Church, dating from 1897. SP 8801 1240. Les Needham. The disused (and recently sold) church at Buckland Wharf. Believed to have been Gospel Hall of Christian Brethren. SP 8953 1149. Les Needham. Les has advised (2009) that the Gospel Hall is now demolished, and a private residence is being built on the site.
Aston Sandford, St. Michael & All Angels. Another view.
SP 7565 0787. Both David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed.
Astwood, St. Peter. SP 9505 4738. Bill McKenzie. Now closed - see disposal notice. Grade II* listed. A Congregational Church is shown on old O.S. maps on Cranfield Road at SP 9527 4727. It survived in active use to the mid-20th century at least, but was demolished at some point. Its site was seen by Streetview in 2021.
Aylesbury, Church of the Good Shepherd (Anglican) on Church Square. SP 8168 1233. Clai Philpott. Link.

Ballinger, St. Mary Mission Hall (1873). SP 9104 0323. Les Needham.
Barton Hartshorn, St. James. SP 6407 3091. David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II listed. Large scale O.S. maps mark Hermitage (Site of) to the south-east of the village at SP 6515 3068. According to this source it was the hermitage of St. Stephen and St. Lawrence. Its site stands within the wooded area on the horizon in a Streetview from 2009.
Beachampton, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Another view, two of the interior - 1, 2, the chancel and the font. SP 7705 3706. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed.
Beaconsfield.
Bellingdon, St. John. SP 9462 0492. Les Needham. Link.
Bierton, St. James the Greater. Two further views - 1, 2
. SP 8362 1527.  All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed. Old large-scale O.S. maps mark two chapels and a Mission Hall. A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel still stands at the corner of Burcott Lane and the A418, apparently now in commercial use. It was seen by Streetview in 2008. A short distance to the west on the A418 is a former Baptist Chapel - it was also seen by Streetview in 2008. The Mission Hall stood behind roadside buildings, also on the A418, at SP 8387 1557. Aerial views suggest that it hasn't survived. It stood behind the buildings (or their predecessors) seen here in a Streetview from 2021.
Bledlow, Holy Trinity. SP 7784 0217. From an old postcard (franked 1908) in Geoff Watts Collection. A modern view, Les Needham. Interior view, Stuart Mackrell. The south doorway, and the very fine font, both
Christopher Skottowe (1963). Link. Grade I listed. Bledlow Methodist Church (1869) at Pitch Green was originally Wesleyan. This source says it closed in 2009. SP 7770 0316. Les Needham.
Bletchley, St. Mary.
SP 8631 3378. John Balaam (2009). Link. Grade I listed. The famous WWII Bletchley Park code-breaking establishment had a chapel, Hut 12, used by Roman Catholics and Christian Scientists. Janet Gimber (2019). Old maps show a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Buckingham Road. Today called Freeman Memorial Methodist Church, it was seen by Streetview in 2020. SP 8661 3348. Link.
Boarstall, St. James.
Another view. SP 6248 1417. Both David Regan (2019). Link1. Link2. Grade II* listed.
Bourne End, St. Mark.
SU 8951 8712. Link. St. Dunstan (R.C.). SU 8947 8743. Link. Both Chris Kippin (2021). A map of 1912-26 marks a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Furlong Road. Labelled on a map of 1971 as The Bourne End Methodist Church, it seems to have survived into the 1980's at least, but it has since closed  (Wikipedia says it closed in 2002) and is now a nursery school. Streetview only provides a poor view (from 2018), but the nursery website provides a better one. SU 8956 8713. Cores End U.R.C. (previously Congregational) stands on Kiln Lane at SU 9038 8729. A date-stone dates it to 1804, replacing an earlier chapel of 1768. Another refers to an enlargement in 1881. All Chris Kippin (2021). Link, with a useful history here. Grade II listed.
Bow Brickhill, All Saints on Church Road. Two extra views - 1, 2. SP 9114 3441. All
David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. Wesleyan Methodist and Congregational Chapels are indicated on the large scale O.S. map of 1901. Both are on Station Road, the Wesleyan at SP 9060 3459, and the Congregational at SP 9044 3463. The latter has gone, its site now the parking area in front of houses (2021 Streetview). The Wesleyan site is now occupied by a school. Its grade II listing makes no mention of it having previously been a chapel, so does anything survive of it? The old school building has the same footprint as the chapel, with the exception that it extended onto what is now the adjacent parking area. 
Brill, All Saints. The tower.
SP 6563 1385. Both Steve Bulman. U.R.C. on High Street is shown on older maps as Congregational. SP 6542 1393. David Regan (2019). Link. The grade II listing dates it to "circa 1839". The former Methodist Chapel was build as Wesleyan in 1841, and has been converted to residential use. SP 6559 1373. David Regan (2019).
Broughton - see Milton Keynes.
Buckingham.
Buckland, All Saints. SP 8879 1245. Les Needham.
 Link. Grade II* listed. The war memorial in the churchyard is listed as grade II. Older O.S. maps show a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at SP 8869 1248. Wikipedia dates it to 1831. It survives (converted), and was seen by Streetview in 2021.
Buckland Common, the former Baptist Chapel (originally Particular Baptist), now a private residence called Chapel House. The village Wikipedia entry dates it to 1860 to the 1980's. SP 9212 0714. Les Needham. The village also had an Anglican Chapel of Ease (wooden), mentioned in the aforementioned Wikipedia article, which dates it to soon after the Baptist Chapel,
and "pulled down in about 1939". The path which probably lead to it can be seen in this Streetview from 2019. The church stood a little further back than, and left of, the building among the trees. SP 9210 0716.

Calverton, All Saints. Another view. SP 7903 3901. Both David Regan (2017). Link, with history and photos. Grade II* listed.
Castlethorpe
, St. Simon and St. Jude. SP 7991 4450. Les Needham. Link. The former Methodist Chapel (now a nursery) on South Street and School Lane, which shows on older maps as Wesleyan. SJ 7990 4437. Les Needham. Link, wherein it's dated to 1811.
Chalfont St. Giles, St. Giles. SU 9910 9351. Chalmers Cursley.
 Link. Grade I listed. The lych-gate is listed as grade II. Deanway United Church (Methodist and U.R.C.) on Deanway, as seen by Streetview in 2019. A postcard available here shows that it was originally Primitive Methodist. SU 9869 9335. Link. A Congregational Chapel stood further east along Deanway, at SU 9884 9338. The chapel was set back from the road, and Bond House now stands on the site (Streetview 2021). It's dated here (where there is an old postcard view of it) to 1901-1972.
Chalfont St. Peter, St. Peter, as seen by Streetview in 2018. TQ 0005 9087. Link. Grade II* listed. For listed features associated with the church, see here. Latimer Minster at Stampwell Farm (over a mile and a half WSW of the town). This is certainly the only tent on this website, but it is a church licensed by the Church of England. SU 9737 8998. Photo taken on behalf of Carole Sage. Link. St. Joseph (R.C.) on Bull Lane and Austenwood Lane. It was seen by Streetview in 2021. SU 9969 8998. Link. All Saints (Streetview 2008) on Oval Way. TQ 0007 8950. Link. Grade II listed, wherein it's dated to 1912, by Temple Moore. Gold Hill Baptist Church meets in The Hub on Church Lane. I think it's this building, seen by Streetview in 2018. SU 9997 9084. Link. Gospel Hall (2019 Streetview) on The Vale. SU 9983 9079. Link.
Chartridge, Mission Church on Chartridge Lane. It's either the same building as, or is built on the the site of, a Baptist Chapel, which pre-dates a map of 1878. SP 9315 0376. Les Needham. Link.
Chearsley, St. Nicholas. Another view, three of the interior - 1, 2, 3, and the font. SP 7203 1031. All
David Regan (2019). Link1. Link2. Grade II* listed. A cross shaft and base in the churchyard is listed as grade II. Old maps show a Baptist Chapel on Wichendon Road at SP 7170 1078. The house on the site today is called The Old Chapel (2009 Streetview), but it betrays no signs of its history. Does anything of the chapel survive, or is it a later build on the same site?
Cheddington, St. Giles. SP 9222 1801.
  Les Needham. Link. Grade II* listed. Methodist Church (built as Wesleyan in 1902). SP 9210 1732. Les Needham. Link. Older O.S. maps show an earlier Wesleyan Chapel nearby, on High Street, at SP 9222 1729. It pre-dates a map of the early 1880's. Converted, it's now known as Chiltern House, seen here by Streetview in 2020.
Chenies, St. Michael, is the resting place of the Dukes of Bedford. TQ 0157 9836. Chalmers Cursley. Another view, Alan Wilson. Another view, three of the interior - 1, 2, 3, two of the several fine monuments - 1, 2, and the font, all
Chris Stafford (2013). Link. Grade I listed. Chenies Baptist Church, dated here to 1779, with later additions and alterations. TQ 0211 9813. Chalmers Cursley. Link.
Chesham.
Chesham Bois, St. Leonard. Another view. SU 9689 9982. Both Les Needham.
 Link. Grade II listed. The cemetery has a Chapel at SU 9666 0009. Not seen by the Streetview van, a photo of it can be seen here (pdf).
Chetwode, St. Mary and St. Nicholas (aka Chetwode Priory). Two interior views - 1, 2, and the font. The church retains two sets of box pews for families - these are sufficiently tall to hide the occupiers from the congregation and vicar! SP 6405 2979. All David Regan (2018). Link. Grade I listed.
Chicheley, St. Lawrence. Another view. SP 9046 4586. Both David Regan (2018). Link (has interior photos). Grade I listed.
Chilton, St. Mary. Three extra views - 1, 2, 3. SP 6867 1161. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed.
Cholesbury, St. Lawrence. SP 9293 0717. Les Needham.
 Link. Grade II listed.
Clifton Reynes, St. Mary the Virgin. Two interior views - 1, 2, a squint, a tomb of a knight and his wife, floor brasses, two views of the font - 1, 2. SP 8990 5138. All David Regan (2017). Link. Grade I listed.
Cold Brayfield, St. Mary (C). SP 9293 5225. David Regan (2017). Another view, and the Norman or Norman-style door, both
Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade II* listed.
Cublington, St. Nicholas. SP 8388 2221. Bill McKenzie. Two additional views - 1, 2, two of the interior - 1, 2, and the font, all David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. A former Methodist Chapel stands a short distance east of the church, at SP 8393 2223. It was originally Wesleyan, and pre-dates a map of 1883. Aerial maps suggest that it survives (or replaced by a building with the same footprint), but it hasn't been seen by the Streetview van, and I haven't been able to find a photo.
Cuddington, St. Nicholas.
Two views of the interior - 1, 2, the chancel and the font. SP 7374 1121. Link. Grade II* listed. The Methodist Church on Lower Church Street was built as Wesleyan (SP 7381 1129). It pre-dates an old O.S. map of 1899, and it had a predecessor on Holly Tree Lane. Holy Tree Cottage occupies the same footprint as the old chapel, though judging by appearances on a 2019 Streetview, little or nothing remains of the chapel (unless you know better!). Link. All David Regan (2019). The village also used to have a Baptist Chapel on Dadbrook. This source dates it to 1831 (and the Wesleyan to 1894). The garages seen in this 2021 Streetview now stand on its site. An old photo of it can be found here (which dates it to 1829-1993). SP 7386 1105.

Dagnell, All Saints. SP 9917 1628. Bill McKenzie. Link. Grade II listed. The village also used to have a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, on Main Road South, at SP 9934 1610. Pre-dating a map of 1884, it seems to have survived into the second half of the last century, but has been demolished, as this Streetview from 2019 shows.
Denham, St. Mary. TQ 0430 8700. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection.
 Link. Grade I listed. A (former?) Methodist Chapel (originally Wesleyan) stands on Cheapside Lane at TQ 0397 8674. Its uncertain status is because Google Maps suggests it's still active, but it's appearance (2019 Streetview) suggests otherwise.
Dinton, St. Peter and St. Paul. SP 7668 1107. Clai Philpott. Another view, the splendid doorway and tympanum, all David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed.
Drayton Beauchamp, St. Mary the Virgin. SP 9016 1188. Bill McKenzie. Another view and the interior. Both Aidan McRae Thomson.
 Link. Grade I listed.
Drayton Parslow, Holy Trinity. SP 8374 2842. Bill McKenzie. Since Bill took his photo, the tall shrubs have been removed - another view, David Regan (2018). Link. Grade II* listed. The Baptist Chapel on Chapel Lane, as seen by Streetview in 2011. It has a date-stone for 1830, with enlargement in 1883. SP 8394 2845. The village also has a former Primitive Methodist Chapel, on Carrington Hall Road. This source dates it to 1912 replacing an earlier and smaller chapel of 1847. Streetview saw it in 2011. SP 8419 2879.
Dunton, St. Martin (C). Another view. SP 8238 2437. Both
David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed.

Edgcott, St. Michael and All Angels. Another view. SP 6800 2280. Both David Regan (2019). Grade II* listed. The village also had a Congregational Chapel on Buckingham Road, at SP 6814 2272. Demolished, it's dated here to 1825. The latest available map to show it as a place of worship is from 1949. It stood at about the gap in the hedge at the dead centre of a 2009 Streetview.
Ellesborough, St. Peter and St. Paul. SP 8364 0674. Bill McKenzie. An attractive night-time shot Clai Philpott.
 Link. Grade II* listed.
Emberton, All Saints. Another view, two interior views - 1, 2, and the font. The angel war memorial is unusual. Why was the village clock tower built to resemble a church tower? SP 8850 4945 (for the church). All David Regan (2017). Link. Grade II* listed.

Fenny Stratford, the former Salvation Army hall on Church Street, now in use as a youth centre. It's dated here to 1887. Circa SP 8815 3408. Rob Kinnon-Brettle. St. Martin. SP 8825 3407. From an old postcard in Reg Dosell's Collection. A modern view, from Streetview in 2021. Link. Grade II* listed, wherein it's dated to 1724-30, with later additions and alterations. Queensway Methodist Church, on Queensway, as seen by Streetview in 2018. It's dated here to 2009. SP 8789 3387. St. Thomas Aquinas (R.C.) is on Aylesbury Street and Sycamore Avenue. It was seen by Streetview in 2019. SP 8813 3372. Link. The Potter's House Christian Fellowship Church meets in the Community Centre (a former Temperance Hall of 1892) on George Street. Streetview saw it in 2018. SP 8807 3405. Link. Older O.S. maps show a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Watling Street, at SP 8811 3419. As of 2021, its site (Streetview) remains undeveloped. On a map of 1881 there's a Primitive Methodist Chapel on Aylesbury Street at SP 8815 3394. In 2021 (Streetview) there was an Indian Restaurant on the site. Another vanished chapel was the Baptist Chapel on Aylesbury Street, at SP 8818 3387. It's called Spurgeon Memorial Church here, where there is a photo, and it's dated to 1892. In this 2021 Streetview, it would have stood partly under the flats at the left, extending onto the garage forecourt. The cemetery off Aylesbury Street used to have two mortuary chapels. These were Nonconformist at SP 8796 3369, and Church of England at SP 8796 3372. Only the latter survives, and it was seen (distantly) by Streetview in 2021. The other chapel stood a short distance further left.
Fingest, St. Bartholomew. SU 7767 9115. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. A modern view, Derek Collier, and another,
Christopher Skottowe (1963). Link. Grade I listed.

 Link. Grade II listed, wherein it's dated to 1849.

Gawcott, Holy Trinity. SP 6800 3183. Steve Bulman. Two additional views - 1, 2, two interior views - 1, 2, and the font, all David Regan (2018), who advises that Sir George Gilbert Scott was baptised here. Link. Grade II* listed. The Methodist Church (Streetview 2011) is on Main Street, and is labelled on older O.S. maps as Primitive Methodist. This source dates it to 1868. Link.
Gayhurst, St. Peter. One of Simon Jenkin's "Thousand Best Churches", David was disappointed that it was locked, and the signage on the approach was designed to discourage visits. Another view. SP 8465 4625. Both David Regan (2017). Link. Grade I listed.
Gerrards Cross, St. James.
Its grade II* listing dates it to 1859. TQ 0009 8793. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. Link. The Methodist Church on Oak End Way, as seen by Streetview in 2019. TQ 0060 8866. Link. The history page dates it to 1958, and explains that it was preceded on the same site by a tin church of 1908. St. Andrew (U.R.C.) on Packhorse Road. It was seen by Streetview in 2021. TQ 0027 8855. Link. St. Michael's Convent (Anglican) on Vicarage Way. Their website has a photo of the buildings, and on the Chapel page, a photo of the interior of the chapel. TQ 0054 8826.
Granborough, St. John the Baptis
t. Another view, and the unusual and effective war memorial. SP 7678 2500. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. A former Methodist Chapel stands on Winslow Road, at SP 7669 2515. Labelled on older O.S. maps as Wesleyan, it was seen by Streetview in 2021. Genuki, quoting from an old directory, dates it to 1871, and it seems to have been closed no later than 1955. Other material on the same page implies that it had a predecessor, though it doesn't mention its location.
Great Brickhill, St. Mary the Virgin on Church La
ne. SP 9011 3079. Bill McKenzie. Two extra views - 1, 2, both David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. The village also had Baptist and Wesleyan Methodist Chapels, the Baptist on Cuff Lane at SP 9048 3008, and the Wesleyan on Pound Hill at SP 9049 3039.  The Methodist Chapel may survive in some form as Chapel Cottage (Streetview 2019), but the Baptist has been demolished. It was set well back from the road, and would have stood behind the modern houses seen here in a Streetview from 2011. Both chapels pre-date a map of 1890.
Great Horwood, St. James. Interior view, the chancel, and the font. SP 7707 3120. All David Regan (2018). Link. Grade II* listed. A converted Congregational Chapel stands on the B4033 at SP 7720 3128. Seen by Streetview in 2011, its grade II listing dates it to 1821, converted from a barn. There's also a former Primitive Methodist Chapel (Streetview 2021), on Little Horwood Road, at SP 7722 3123. Its My Primitive Methodists entry dates it to 1875-1950's.
Great Kimble, St. Nicholas. SP 8255 0597. Bill McKenzie.
 Link. Grade I listed.
Great Missenden.
Grendon Underwood, St. Leonard. Another view.
SP 6772 2099. Bo
th David Regan (2019). Link. The grade II* listing has an interior photo. Older O.S. maps mark a Mission Hall, at SP 6877 2022. Pre-dating a map of 1900, it seems to have survived in active use until the 1950's at least. On large scale maps it's not clear which building the label applies to, but small scale maps show that it was on the south side of the road - somewhere near here (Streetview 2009). I haven't been able to discover its affiliation, or a photo.

Haddenham, St. Mary the Virgin. Another view. SP 7416 0800. Link. Grade I listed. For other listed features in the churchyard, see here. Catholic Church of the Good Shepherd on The Croft.

Ickford, St. Nicholas. Another view, showing the tower. SP 6459 0737. Both Steve Bulman. Link. Grade I listed. Older O.S. maps show a Baptist Chapel on Sheldon Road at SP 6499 0725. It's dated here to 1825. Chapel Cottage (2011 Streetview) stands on the site today - is this the converted chapel, or a newer building on the same site?
Ilmer, St. Peter. Three additional views - 1, 2, 3, and three of the interior - 1, 2, 3 (including the font). SP 7693 0549. All Karel Kuča (2011). Link. Grade II* listed.

 Link. Grade I listed. Ivinghoe and Pitstone Wesleyan Reform Chapel (1865) on High Street. SP 9432 1609. Les Needham. Ian Travis has advised (2010) that this chapel is now closed. The village also has a former Baptist Chapel, on Station Road, at SP 9439 1629. It was seen by Streetview in 2019, and its grade II listing dates it to 1815.

Jordans, the Quaker Meeting House, as seen by Streetview in 2016. Two old postcards, from Christopher Skottowe's Collection, show the burial ground, and the interior. SU 9745 9102. Link. The history page dates it to 1688. Grade I listed.

Latimer, St. Mary Magdalene. TQ 0001 9888. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. A modern view, Les Needham.
Link. Grade II listed, wherein it's dated to circa 1841. Some scant remains survive of the old church of the same name. Its grade II listing (which includes a photo), dates its closure to 1838 when the present church opened. TQ 0084 9867.
Lavendon, St. Michael. Older large scale O.S. maps label it as St. Mary. SP 9161 5365. David Regan (2017). Link. Grade I listed. The village war memorial stands adjacent to the church, and is grade II listed. The Lavendon Union Chapel (1894) on Northampton Road. A map of 1900 labels it as Baptist and Independent. Its predecessor stands to the right. SP 9167 5364. David Regan (2017). Link. The same map also shows a Primitive Methodist Chapel, on Olney Road, at SP 9161 5344. It, (or the building which replaced it, with the same footprint) was seen by Streetview in 2009. Lavendon Premonstratensian Abbey stood to the west of the village, and is indicated on O.S. maps at SP 9034 5341. According to its Wikipedia entry nothing remains to be seen other than earthworks, but the site hasn't been seen by Streetview. A photo showing some of the earthworks (and a history) can be seen here (pdf). Link.
Leckhampstead, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Another view. SP 7264 3792. Both David Regan (2017). Link. Grade I listed.
Lee Common, the Methodist Chapel (1839, as Primitive Methodist) on Oxford Street. This source dates it to 1839. SP 9079 0419. Les Needham. Link. There's also a former Baptist Chapel on Lee Clump Road at SP 9073 0445. It looks an unlikely former chapel from a 2010 Streetview, but it's confirmed here, where there is a good history.
Lee Gate, Emanuel Hall (1883). SP 8981  0533. Les thinks it may be in use today as the village hall. Les Needham.
Ley Hill, the Methodist Chapel, built as Primitive Methodist in 1887. SP 9887 0201. Les Needham. Just a short distance to the SE older O.S. maps mark a Baptist Chapel, at SP 9895 0195. It pre-dated a map of 1882-3, where it's labelled as Baptist Chapel (General) and it had gone out of use and been demolished before the 1960 1" map was compiled. It stood roughly on the right hand half of the building at the centre of a 2010 Streetview, though it was aligned at 90 to it.
Lillingstone Dayrell, St. Nicholas of Bari. Another view, two of the interior - 1, 2, a selection of tombs and brasses - 1, 2, 3, 4, and the font. SP 7053 3983. All David Regan (2017). Link. Grade I listed.

Little Brickhill, St. Mary Magdalene on Watling Stree
t. Two extra views - 1, 2. SP 9104 3245. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. There's also a former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Great Brickhill Lane. It can be seen in a Streetview from 2018, and it's date-stone for 1819 by zooming in. This source dates it to 1840, so is this a case where the dates-stone from an earlier chapel was built into its replacement?
Little Chalfont, St. George on White Lion Road. SU 9848 9779. Chalmers Cursley. Link. St. Aidan (R.C.) stands a little further east on the same road. SU  9865 9764. Chalmers Cursley.

It was seen by Streetview in 2011. Link. The history page dates the church to 1853. Older O.S. maps show a Primitive Methodist Chapel on Sycamore Close at SP 6932 0867. Dated here to 1866, it doesn't seem to have been active beyond the 1950's. It, or the building which replaced it, was seen by Streetview in 2010. There was also a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel which stood on Chearsley Road, dated here to 1840-1920's, and where it also says that it had a smaller predecessor of 1828 (though whether it was on the same or a different site is not mentioned. SP 6949 0886.
Ludgershall, St. Mary the Virgin, and its tower. SP 6599 1720. Both
Steve Bulman. Two additional views - 1, 2, both David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed. The Methodist Church was built as Wesleyan in 1904. The lack of on-line information suggests that it may no longer be active. SP 6597 1748. David Regan (2019). Its likely predecessor is shown as a Wesleyan Chapel on Piddington Road at SP 6571 1778. Pre-dating a map of 1885, the building on the site today was seen by the Streetview van in 2021. Does anything of the chapel survive?

Maids Moreton, St. Edmund. Another view. SP 7064 3517. Both David Regan (2017). Link1. Link2 has some interior views. Grade I listed. There was also a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in the village, on Duck Lake at SP 7033 3556. Active into the mid-20th century at least, it was demolished at some point, and housing (2021 Streetview) built on the site.

Grade II* listed. U.R.C. on Tompkins Lane, as seen by Streetview in 2021. SP 6421 2296. Link. Older O.S. maps show a Congregational Chapel a short distance to the east on Bicester Road at SP 6427 2298, presumably its predecessor. Its site was seen by Streetview in 2021.
Marsworth, All Saints. SP 9199 1460. Les Needham.
 Link. Grade II* listed. For the listed lych-gate and war memorial, see here. Just a short distance away to the S.E. on Vicarage Road there used to be a Baptist Chapel. SP 9208 1456. It stood where the leftmost bungalow is, in a Streetview from 2019. Its closure is given here as 1907.

 Link. Grade I listed.
Moulsoe, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (C). Another view. SP 9066 4175. Both David Regan (2018). Link. Grade I listed. A grave enclosure in the churchyard is listed as grade II. A Mission Room shows on older O.S. maps on Cranfield Road. Pre-dating a map of 1900, none of the maps which show it are clear as to which building the label should be applied to. However, Streetview shows Chapel Cottage directly opposite Wood End Lane at SP 9109 4199 - the Mission Room stood in what is now the garden of the house seen centrally in this 2021 Streetview. It had gone out of use by the mid-20th century.
Mursley, St. Mary the Virgin. SP 8171 2855. Bill McKenzie. Another view, two general views of the interior - 1, 2, the chancel, and the font, all David Regan (2018). Link. Grade II* listed. The former Baptist Chapel on Main Street, as seen by Streetview in 2011. It has a date-stone for 1883. SP 8159 2893. This source says it replaced an earlier chapel of 1846 on the same site. It also gives it's closure as 1997, and it says that the congregation moved into a nearby wooden chapel, which closed in 2018. It can be seen here in a Streetview from 2009, and the housing built on the site here, in 2021.

Nash, All Saints (1857-8). SP 7813 3401. David Regan (2017). Link. Grade II listed. Older O.S. maps mark a Baptist Chapel off High Street, at SP 7808 3434. This source (with photos) dates it to 1824-1985, with subsequent demolition, and the present building put up re-using the old bricks. It was seen by the Streetview van in 2009.
Nether Winchendon, St. Nicholas, which has a fine set of box pews and other quality woodwork. Two interior views - 1, 2, the chancel and the font. SP 7327 1226. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed. According to its Wikipedia entry, Nether Winchendon House sits on the site of an Augustinian Priory. Assuming this is correct, it's a little curious that the grade I listing makes no mention of it. It was seen by Streetview in 2010. SP 7345 1208.

Since Les took his photo, the church has changed hands, and is now Milton Keynes Tabernacle (Redeemed Christian Church of God). Link. Holding Forth Christian Centre, of 1936, on Bradwell Road. SP 8311 4137. Les Needham. Al Karam Trust Mosque on North Street and Bradwell Road is labelled on older maps as a Baptist Chapel. It was seen by Streetview in 2019. SP 8310 4145. Link. Faith Tabernacle United Pentecostal Church on Newport Road, as seen by Streetview in 2021. SP 8298 4153. Link. A map of 1955 marks a place of worship on Caledonian Road at SP 8244 4133. When Streetview passed in 2012 it was a Gospel Hall, a tin tabernacle.
Newport Pagnell, St. Peter and St. Paul. The church website has a good history. SP 8779 4395. David Regan (2018). Grade I listed. St. Bede (R.C.) on High Street, as seen by Streetview in 2021. SP 8735 4379. Link. The Methodist Church is set back from High Street - the access alleyway was seen by Streetview in 2018. The church website includes a photo. Its grade II listing says it was Wesleyan, and dates it to 1815. SP 8750 4393. Like the Methodist Church, the U.R.C. is set back from High Street. Older maps label it as Congregational. The access to it was seen by Streetview in 2021. The church itself can be seen here. It, and the following Baptist Chapel, pre-date a map of 1886. SP 8758 4386. Grade II listed. Link. A Baptist Chapel used to stand just a few yards to the west, at SP 8749 4387. It stood about where the Chinese restaurant is in this 2021 Streetview. Today's Baptist Church is on an apparently un-named side street off Silver Street, at SP 8757 4360. Streetview saw it in 2018. Link. The 1886 map mentioned earlier shows a Chapel (United Brothers) set back from the west side of Silver Street at circa SP 8758 4371. I don't know if anything of it survives, Streetview hasn't seen it or its site, and I've never heard of this sect!

Newton Longville Free Church (Methodist and Baptist) on London End, a s seen by Streetview in 2009. SP 8491 3161. Link. It stands just a short distance from one of its presumed predecessors, the former Baptist Chapel at SP 8494 3168, also on London End. Streetview saw it in 2009. Its other likely predecessor was originally the Primitive Methodist Chapel on Westbrook End, at SP 8440 3132. It, or perhaps a later Methodist Church, survives, and was seen by Streetview in 2016.
North Crawley, St. Firmin. SP 9268 4465. Bill McKenzie.
 Link. Grade I listed. Congregational and Wesleyan Chapels are shown on old O.S. maps. Both survive, though neither as an active church. The former Methodist, now the village institute (SP 9275 4475) is off High Street. It was seen by Streetview in 2021. This source (https://www.northcrawley-pc.gov.uk/Document/Default.aspx?DocumentUid=D77C8F89-5DDD-42F1-9D70-B7485D4A8096, a pdf file) says it was the institute "by 1910". The former Congregational Chapel, on High Street, as seen by Streetview in 2021. It has a date-stone for 1821.
North Marston, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, on Church Street
. David advises that the restoration of this church was paid for by Queen Victoria. Another view, two of the interior - 1, 2, chancel, piscina and triple sedilia, and the font, with cover. SP 7770 2270. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed. The Wesley Centre (Streetview 2011), a community and heritage building, was converted from a Methodist Chapel in 2017 (source). Unsurprisingly, it was originally Wesleyan Methodist, and has a date-stone for 1864. SP 7766 2256. The other chapel in the village was Primitive Methodist, on Quainton Road at SP 7696 2283. Its My Primitive Methodists entry dates it to 1839. Converted to residential use (Chapel House), it was seen by Streetview in 2021.

Oakley, St. Mary on Bicester Road. SP 6419 1228. David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. A churchyard tomb is listed as grade II. The village used to have a Congregational Chapel, on Manor Road at SP 6405 1232. A Congregational Chapel is recorded here as having been "first built in 1845", but whether this is the same as this site is unclear. Streetview saw the site in 2019.
Olney, St. Peter and St. Paul. John Newton was curate here for some years. He's probably best known as the writer of the hymn "Amazing Grace". SP 8899 5097. Bill McKenzie.

Oving, All Saints, on Church Road. Another view.
SP 7824 2137. Both David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II* listed. The Old Chapel is a house on Bowling Alley, a former Primitive Methodist Chapel (Streetview 2011). This source dates it to 1869, and says that it had a predecessor of 1849. Whether it was on the same site or not isn't specified. SP 7868 2160.

Padbury, St. Mary the Virgin. Two interior views - 1, 2, and the font. Another font stands in a corner. Some very fragmentary wall paintings survive. SP 7214 3091. All David Regan (2018). Link. Grade II* listed. A former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (Streetview in 2021) stands on Main Street at SP 7185 3061. It has a date-stone for 1876. There was also a Primitive Methodist Chapel on Lower Way, dated here to 1841. The only available map to show it (1885) isn't clear about which building the label is meant to be applied to - there is no label on the next map of 1900. It will have stood somewhere near to SP 7204 3065. There are no obvious candidates for a surviving building, but it will have been somewhere near to the 2011 Streetview here

Chapel Cottage at the southern end of the village is a former Primitive Methodist Chapel. SP 6576 2961. Whether the building (2021 Streetview) is the converted chapel, or a later cottage built on the site of it, is not readily apparent, although the oculus above the doorway is suggestive.
Prestwood, Holy Trinity. SU 8741 9967. Derek Collier.
Link. Grade II listed, wherein it's dated to 1849. The lych-gate is also listed as grade II. The Methodist Church on High Street, as seen by Streetview in 2022. Older maps label it as Wesleyan. SP 8716 0088. Link. Zion Baptist Chapel is shown on a map of 1883, on the north side of Kiln Road at SP 8679 0113. It stood at the front of the surviving burial ground seen in a Streetview from 2019. Closed and demolished at some point, a new church of the same name was built across the road (Streetview 2019). I suspect that this has now closed, as I can find no internet presence. The congregation of King's Church meets in the village hall on Wycombe Road, seen by Streetview in 2021. SP 8702 0080. Link.

Quainton, St. Mary and Holy Cross on Church Street. Two additional views - 1, 2, two of the interior - 1, 2, the chancel, and the font. The church is notable for its many fabulous monuments - here are some examples - 1, 2, 3, 4. SP 7500 2015. All David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed. A Baptist Chapel stands set back from Church Street, at SP 7476 2024. It can be seen in a Streetview from 2011, and it pre-dates a map of 1883. Link. A Primitive Methodist Chapel is also shown on the same map, on Lower Street at SP 7342 2011. Now The Old Chapel, it was seen by Streetview in 2011. It was still active into the 1950's at least.

Ravenstone, All Saints.
SP 8506 5089. David Regan (2017). Link. Interior photos are available here. Grade I listed. A cross shaft in the churchyard is listed as grade II. In what may be a rare error, the O.S. 1:25,000 map of 1955 shows another place of worship immediately S.E. of All Saints, in the churchyard, at SP 8506 5088. No other available maps show it. Another anomaly is that while I was looking on Streetview for another place of worship, shown on the same map at SP 8497 5036, on Common Street, I found Union Chapel (2009 Streetview). This source dates it to 1790, re-built in 1907, but it's missing from a map of 1900.

Grade I listed. Stewkley Methodist Church. Sandy Calder advises that this was built by the Primitive Methodists in 1903. SP 854 255. Les Needham. Older maps show a predecessor on what is now Orchard Lane, at SP 8537 2546. Streetview saw the house on the site in 2011. The ground floor brickwork looks old so the chapel may survive in some form. Link. A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (2011 Streetview) on Chapel Square. SP 8503 2633. O.S. maps show Holy Trinity Church on Dunton Road, at SP 8528 2525. Streetview saw it in 2011 - at least, it saw the building on the site at the time - is this the heavily converted former church, or a more recent building?
Stoke Goldington, St. Peter. Another view. SP 8318 4918. Both David Regan (2017). Link. Grade I listed. An Independent (Congregational) Chapel is shown on old O.S. maps set back from High Street, and invisible to Streetview. This source, which dates it to 1819, includes an illustration.
