Dalry, North Ayrshire.
Dalrymple, East Ayrshire, the Parish Church (CoS). Three further views - 1, 2, 3. NS 3618 1461. The site of Dalrymple Free Church, which is now unoccupied. The White Horse pub, a few yards away (seen at the right here) was originally the manse. The church was built in 1864, enalrged in the 1890's, and seems to have closed between 1936 (for when the National Archives of Scotland have minutes), and the later 1950's, as the O.S. map for 1957-8 doesn't show it. The 1946 edition shows it as a U.F. church, though it may have been closed by then. It had been preceded by a wooden church, known as the "Spale Kirk", built in 1846, which shows on the 1858 O.S. map as Free Church. It was presumably demolished at some point subsequent to the building of the Free Church of 1864. It stood at circa NS 3589 1459. The congregation didn't have a permanent home before the wooden church. NS 3618 1461. All Howard Richter (2014).

A "History Man" article Tracing the lost chapels of Cumbria, in the Cumberland News of 20 March 2020 discusses a medieval chapel, all trace of which has been lost. It was St. Wynemius, mentioned in a document of 1343, and is supposed to have been located in a field called Chapel Flat. If you know where Chapel Flat is, I'd be pleased to hear from you. Link.

Darnconner, East Ayrshire, a vanished mining village, has a former Kirk, presumably converted to secular use. Map evidence shows that it was built by 1896, and it seems to have gone out of use in the late 1950's. I haven't been able to find a photo, and the Streetview van hasn't been past it. NS 5763 2397.
Darrington, West Yorkshire, St. Luke and All Saints. Bill Henderson. Three further views - 1, 2, 3, all David Regan (2011). Link. Grade I listed - link. Former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, now converted into flats. My appreciation to Janet Gimber for the identification. David Regan (2011).

Darvel, East Ayrshire,
the Parish Church (CoS, 1887-8) on Hastings Square, originally known as Central Church. NS 5632 3745. Link. Grade B listed. The former Free Church, later known as Easton Memorial Church, closed in 1992 following union with the then Central Church. NS 5621 3748. The former Evangelical Union Church on West Main Street. According to the website for the parish church, this church closed in 1965. NS 5621 3748. All Martin Richter (2013). The former Original Secession Church (1883) on West Donnington Street. Marked as "O.S. Church" on the 1896 map, "O.S. Ch." on the 1910, it shows as "Hall" on the 1964, 1970 and 1991 editions. NS 5634 3760. Howard Richter (2014). The former United Presbyterian Church (1884) on Ranoldcoup Road. Old maps show what may be a church and school on the same site (though not the same building) in 1858, as it say "Free Church" and "School" on separate lines. It isn't clear whether this is a Free Church School, or a Free Church and a school. The 1896 marks the present building as "U.P. Church" in 1896, and the 1910 as "U.F. Ch.", but the maps of 1964, 1970 and 1991 mark it as "Hall". As the sign shows, it's currently being used by the local Scouts. Another view. NS 5636 3743. Both Howard Richter (2014).

Dawley, Shropshire, Holy Trinity. Derrick Reeves.
Dawlish, Devon.
Dawn, Conwy, Rehoboth Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, which sits to the north-east of the village at SH 8701 7311. The Coflein entry dates it to 1837 and says that it was still a chapel in 2000. It can be seen here on a 2011 Streetview. To the west of the village, at SH 8521 7277 is Croes-engan Welsh Presbyterian Chapel. The Coflein entry says it is a 1906 re-build on the site of an earlier chapel of 1840. The now-converted chapel, visible here on a 2011 Streetview, was at the far end of the building, originally (as old maps show) with a small porch projecting from the corner towards the road.
Daymer Bay, Cornwall,
St. Enodoc. This church has been buried beneath the sands in the past, so much so that the vicar is said to have had to enter the church via the skylight. SW 931 772.

Dedicated to St. Mungo. NY 0724 3640. Link. Grade I listed. Methodist Chapel of 1839, re-built in 1888. NY 0719 3601. Both Steve Bulman. Link. The village once had a Primitive Methodist Chapel, which shows on the 1900 6" O.S. map, on Main Street at NY 0711 3607. I think the property now standing on the site is the white painted one here (a 2011 Streetview), behind the telegraph pole, or it may possibly be the adjacent bungalow. The My Primitive Methodist entry dates it to 1856, and the closure would seem to have been between 1960 and 1967.
Dearnley, Littleborough, Greater Manchester - see Littleborough.

Grade II listed. The Methodist Church at Hop Pole stands about 2 miles S.W. of the church, at TF 1902 1408. Originally Littleworth Primitive Methodist Chapel, its My Primitive Methodist entry dates it to 1922, replacing an earlier chapel of 1867 (which old maps show was on the same site). It can be seen on a 2009 Streetview here. Link.
Deerhurst, Gloucestershire, the Priory, dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin. SO 8704 2996. Margaret Woodley. Link.
Its grade I listing (which has numerous photos) mentions fabric from the 8th century, and a 9th century font. Odda's Chapel (1056). SO 8691 2985. Graeme Harvey.

Defynnog, Powys,
St. Cynog. Another view, and another taken during the restoration of 2010. The early font, and the "foliated cross". SN 9253 2793. All Richard Camp. Another view, Paul Wood (2017). Link. The former Trinity Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. SN 9277 2765. Neil Floyd. Link. A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel once stood adjacent to the river at SN 9254 2763. The road alignment has changed since then, and the site of the chapel now lies beneath the road approaching the bridge over the river, seen here on a Streetview of 2011. This source advises of a building date of 1809, with a re-build in 1873, and demolition "by 1953".  Tabernacl Independent Chapel stood at SN 9262 2764. Its Coflein entry provides a building date of 1865, with demolition in 1992, following closure three years previously. An information plaque which can just be seen at the extreme right of this 2011 Streetview can be better seen here (scroll down),
and it includes a photo of the demolished chapel. It implies that the chapel stood roughly where the parked car is in the Streetview already mentioned.

Another of the interior, the stone pulpit, and the Norman pillar piscina (now used as the font), which is rated very highly by Pevsner, all Chris Stafford (2014). Link. Grade II listed. Old O.S. maps show, a quarter of a mile W.N.W. of the church, "St. Lucia's Church (site of)", at TF 0382 3781. It was demolished in 1867. The Streetview van doesn't have a view of the site, and I've been unable to find any photographs of it.

The village also had a Primitive Methodist Chapel, at SD 7033 8712, as shown on the 1909 25" O.S. map. This source provides dates of 1841-1934. Whether any fabric of the building survives is not at present, apparent. A Streetview of 2016 shows the building it has been converted into, or has replaced it - the cream painted building at left here. The same map also notices Zion Chapel (Congl.) at SD 7041 8685. It can be seen on a 2011 Streetview here.

Draycote, Warwickshire, the former General Baptist Chapel (1811), now converted to residential use. There is a date-stone for 1869, though this is perhaps the date for a re-build - see here for a photo of 1911, mentioning a centenary. The OS map for 1887 shows it as Baptist Chapel (General). This source mentions a Particular Baptist Chapel in the village; whether this is the same building is not known at present. Although the 1955 OS map shows it as Bapt.

Dunterton, Devon, All Saints. Previously in the "Unknown" section, Gerry Porter wanted this church in south-west England identified. Taken in 1998, it has distinctive large pinnacles, and looked to me to be in the Cornish tradition. Janet Gimber identified it, and to salve my pride, explained that it was almost on the border with Cornwall! SX 3759 7930. Gerry Porter. Another view,

Dunwich, Suffolk, the ruins of Greyfriars (Franciscan). In the background is a church tower, possibly that of All Saints.

Durness, Highland,
Church of Scotland. It was built as a Free Church a few years after the disruption of 1843, and was later United Free. NC 404 669. Bill Henderson. Another view, Martin Richter (2013). Link. As Church of Scotland it had at least three predecessors. Its immediate predecessor was this building at NC 4023 6781, now in residential use. It was apparently built circa 1814 when the medieval church was abandoned. The date when it went out of use as a church is unclear, but map evidence implies it was between 1905 and 1962. Martin Richter (2013). The ruins of the late medieval church (Balnakeil) stand at NC 39109 68649. This link provides a date of 1692, and also mentions a yet earlier church or churches going back to at least the 13th century, and possibly much earlier if the traditional association with St. Maelrubha is correct. Two additional views - 1, 2, and the tomb of Duncan MacMorroch - 1, 2. All M

Chris Kippin (2020), who advises that it had a relatively short life of only 43 years. A 2004 News item about its closure. While looking on Streetview for the Congregational Chapel marked on old O.S. maps at SU 1596 4472 (it hasn't survived - 2011 Streetview of the site on College Road) I accidentally found a Free Church standing at the junction of Bulford Road and School Road - 2011 Streetview. This source dates it to 1905, when it was successor to the Congregational Chapel.
