Bolham Water, a former chapel.
Heath advises that it has a date-stone which reads "B.G. 1831". ST 1675 1225. © Heath Nickels (2016). Visible in the 2009 Streetview, but evidently removed by the time of Heath's visit, is a board announcing the chapel as "Blackdown Hills Mission, Bolham".

Brayford, the former Baptist Church of 1820 (plaque). The closure date is not yet apparent. SS 6866 3473.
A photo of the chapel when it was still active is available here - the second row, fourth photo. Another photo on the same website here (third row) shows an old postcard. The building looks different; the postcard shows the building before an extension was added - the extension shows in the first photo in this entry as the stone-built section. The original building ended at the junction of the stone and rendered portions. Grade II listing, which says it is the oldest Baptist Chapel in North Devon. The Methodist Church was built as Wesleyan, which opened in 1928. A rather wider view can be had on Streetview, here. Its smaller predecessor stands opposite - see Streetview here. More photos are available here, and here. Note in particular the third photo on the last link - which shows both chapels, on the day of the opening of the new chapel, and presumably the day of closure for the old. SS 6870 3475.

Brendon, the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, now converted to commercial use. It pre-dates a map of 1888, was still in use in 1940, but had gone out of use before 1958. SS 7630 4775. © Martin Richter (2018).

Chudleigh, St. Martin & St. Mary. SX 867 794. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection.

Churston Ferrers, St. Mary the Virgin. Two additional views - 1, 2, three of the interior - 1, 2, 3, and the font. This was Agatha Christie's church, who paid for the East window - apparently she didn't like the old one! SX 904 564. All © Dennis Harper (2018). Grade II* listed.
Clapworthy, former church, now in residential use. It must have closed prior to 1976, as a map of that date doesn't show a church. Older maps have a church or chapel (1957-8), Mission Chapel (1905), and St. John's Church (1889). SS 676 241. © Martin Richter (2011).

Coldridge, St. Matthew. Interior view, the rood screen, and a "bench frontal" (see the appended listing) with a Latin inscription. SS 6985 0765. All
© Chris Kippin (2021). Long before Chris had sent his photos in, I had received scans of two different postcards of an interior (1, 2), from Judy Flynn and Brian Curtis, within days of each other. I suspected immediately that they were of the same church, but had no idea of where it might be. One postcard had the word "Coleridge" printed on it, and it seems that this was the old spelling for what is now Coldridge. Greg Mishevski and Simon Edwards obliged with the identification, and confirmation that they were indeed of the same church. There are some older references to the church dedication being St. Mary (Simon refers to a 1919 Bligh Bond book). Link. Grade I listed. The former Plymouth Brethren Chapel (or the house built on its site) as seen by Streetview in 2010. SS 6972 0769.

Dunstone, the Methodist Church, which dates from 1833. Another view. SX 714 757. Both © James Murray.
Dunterton, 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,

The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (1902), now in residential use. SS 600 414. There was an earlier chapel nearby, shown on the 1886 O.S. 1:2500 map.

George Nympton, St. George. Another view , and the porch. SS 700 229. Grade II* listed. The former Providence Bible Christian Chapel. Another view. The date-stone isn't too clear, but probably shows a date of 1862. Old maps show a simple rectangular building - so the date-stone was probably over the original front door. At some point before 1973 it had become a Methodist Chapel, and it still shows as such on a 1974-6 map. Closure date not certain. The chapel is in the churchyard, so both share the same grid reference - SS 700 230. All © Martin Richter (2011).

This church had also been an entry on the long-term unsolved page but its identity has now been confirmed. Brad and Steph MacDonald inherited these large framed photos (1, 2) from a relative who lived in North Cornwall. They believe they are over 100 years old. Hannah Chandler has provided the solution. Suspecting it was this Church, she contacted the owners of the adjacent house, who confirmed that it was indeed St. Mary, and that the differences in the old photo, and the church as it is today, are explained by renovation works. Hannah also pointed me to its Wikipedia entry which has a modern photo. Link. Grade I listed. Several monuments in the churchyard are listed separately - these can be found here.

Weare Giffard, 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. My appreciation to Greg Mishevski, who finally solved the mystery. SS 467 221. Link.
