Gabalfa, Cardiff (City), Cardiff - see Cardiff (City).
Gaddesby, Leicestershire, St. Luke, and its interior. SK 6898 1305. Both © Aidan McRae Thomson (2012). Three additional interiors - 1, 2, 3, the altar, and three of the tombs and monuments - 1, 2, 3, all © Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade I listed. Old maps shows a Chapel at SK 6868 1308, on Chapel Lane. It was Wesleyan, and is dated here "by 1837". It was still active in 1940, but it's closure date is so far obscure. Streetview provides a 2011 view of "Chapel House" built on the site.

Gainford, Co. Durham, St. Mary, on The Green. Another view. NZ 1697 1668. Both © Alan Blacklock. Another view, carved medieval slabs in the porch, two interior views - 1, 2, and the font, all © Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade I listed. Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (dating from 1834) also on The Green. NZ 1697 1676. © Alan Blacklock. St. Osmund (R.C.) on Main Road. Another view. NZ 1718 1698. Both © Alan Blacklock. Interior view, © Mike Forbester. Older maps indicate an Independent/Congregational Chapel on Main Road, at NZ 1712 1689, a little way west of the R.C. Church. It pre-dates a map of 1858, and appears to have gone out of use between 1954 and the mid-1970's. At least a part of it seems to have survived - see the building to the right of the white conservatory in this Streetview of 2009.

Galgorm, Co. Antrim, Green Pastures Evangelical Church, known locally as The Peoples Church. D 072 028. © Gerard Close (2013).
Galhampton, Somerset, the church. Its history can be found on the church website here, but basically what was originally a Congregational Chapel is now an L.E.P. (U.R.C. and CoE). ST 6360 2974. © Chris Kippin (2020).
Galmington, Taunton, Somerset - see Taunton.
Galmpton, Devon, Holy Trinity. Another view. SX 686 404. Both © James Murray.
Galston, East Ayrshire, Parish Church (CoS). Another view. An 1809 build on an ancient site, according to here. NS 500 367. Grade B listed. St. Sophia (R.C., 1885-6) on Bentinck Street clearly echoes the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Another view. NS 503 365. Link1. Link2. Grade A listed. The former United Presbyterian Church on Wallace Street at NS 5014 3650. The date of closure is at present not known, but it seems to have still been active in 1986, when it shows as Church on the OS map of that year. Grade B listed, which says it was a re-build in 1859, and indeed the 1857 OS map shows a smaller building on the site. All © Martin Richter (2013). Gospel Hall on Glebedykes. NS 5000 3653. © Howard Richter (2014). Mission Hall. NS 4981 3679. © Howard Richter (2014). Howard advises of three additional churches, all now demolished. E.U. Church stood on Chapel Street at NS 4987 3661, and the site (seen here on a 2008 Streetview) is now used for housing and car parking. On a different alignment to the housing, the northern corner of the church stood rather closer to the camera than the house. The Free Church stood on Barmill Road at NS 5025 3672, and survived until fairly recently. It was seen by the Streetview van in 2009. Another Free Church stood at NS 5008 3650, off Glebe Road. It seems to have gone out of use in the later 1950's or 1960's. In this Streetview from 2010, the church was positioned behind the cream-coloured cottage, roughly in line with the white van, long axis parallel to the street.
Galway, Co. Galway.
Gamblesby, Cumbria, the former St. John is now a holiday let (link). NY 6096 3930. © Steve Bulman. Link. Methodist Church (1865). The 1900 25" map labels it as Wesleyan. According to the My Wesleyan Methodists entry, it replaced an earlier chapel on the same site. NY 6096 3946. © Malcolm Minshaw. The same map also shows a Congregational Chapel north of the village at NY 6089 3987. A 2009 Streetview is available here.
Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire,
St. Mary the Virgin. Another view. Both © Jim Rushton. Link. The former Methodist Chapel on Everton Road, built as Wesleyan in 1883. Although in Cambridgeshire, it served a congregation from Everton, in Bedfordshire. Closed in 1992, it's now in residential use. © David Regan (2019). A useful history.
Gamlingay Heath, Cambridgeshire, the former "Iron Church", of 1885, now in residential use. According to the Wikipedia entry for the village, it was originally a tin tabernacle (hence the name) built in 1879 as St. Sylvester and it was closed in the 1980's. © David Regan (2019).

Ganarew, Herefordshire, St. Swithin, and the churchyard cross. SO 5294 1632. Both © Paul Wood (2003). Link. Grade II listed.
Ganllwyd, Gwynedd, Capel Libanus (Independent). Another apparent case of a conflict between Coflein, which says it was a conversion from a factory before 1851, and the date-stone of 1857. Perhaps the date-stone refers to a complete re-build? Another view. SH 727 244. The former tin tabernacle Mission Hall, now in use as the village hall. SH 7265 2430. All © Howard Richter (2016).

Garrigill, Cumbria, dedicated to St. John. NY 7451 4152. The former Methodist chapel. The 25" 1899 map labels this as Primitive Methodist. Its My Primitive Methodists entry notes a date-stone for 1885, and mentions earlier chapels of 1856-7, and 1825. It says it was closed circa 2006. NY 7457 4117. Both © Steve Bulman. Link. The former Redwing Congregational Chapel. Now semi-derelict, Ken believes it is soon to undergo conversion. NY 7389 4178. © Ken Roddam.

Garth, Powys, Olewydd Congregational Chapel. SN 964 501. © Mike Berrell.
Garth Row, Cumbria, the former Mission Room (Christian Brethren) on Gurnal Bridge Lane, as seen by the Streetview van in 2009. Another view. On the maps to which I have access, the Mission Room is first so labelled on the edition of 1898, though the same building (or at least one with the same footprint) is shown from the 1860 map. The last map to label it is the edition published in 1956. It now appears to be in residential use. This source provides dates of "by 1858" to 1955. SD 5269 9754.
Garthbeibio, Powys, St. Tydecho. Although today the church is largely of a re-build of 1862, some of the medieval fabric remains. Another view. SH 9855 1189. Both © Paul Wood (2016). Link.

Garthorpe, Lincolnshire, Wesleyan Chapel. © Dave Hitchborne.
Gartocharn, West Dunbartonshire, Kilmaronock Church (CoS). An 1813 re-build on an ancient site, this church is also known as the "Summer Church", as it is only used in the warmer months. Another view. NS 452 875. Link. Grade B listed. It should be no surprise that there is also a "Winter Church", which is in the village of Gartocharn, at NS 428 863. Built as a Relief Church in 1772, re-built 1911, it shows on the 1862 OS map as United Presbyterian. Another view. Grade B listed - beware the reference therein to this being the Summer Church, an error, which the history confirms. There is mention here (2010) of the proposed disposal of this church, but this news item (scroll to the end) implies the Summer/Winter alternation was still happening in 2013.

Garton, East Riding of Yorkshire, Methodist Church © James Murray.
Garton on the Wolds, East Riding of Yorkshire, St. Michael & All Angels (O). © Bill Henderson. Two additional views - 1, 2, and two very fine Norman doorways - 1, 2. As David says, if you aren't prepared for the interior, it will come as a bit of a surprise! It was painted throughout in the 1850's for Sir Tatton Sykes. Six interior views - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. All © David Regan (2019). Link. Grade I listed. The former Methodist Church, built as Primitive Methodist in 1871.

Old maps mark a Primitive Methodist Chapel at TF 9623 2384. The only dating evidence I've found is here, where it says "founded before 1885", and closure date not known. If any of it survives, it will probably be the rear part (the yellow stone or brick) of the left hand building seen in a Streetview of 2008.

Gayle, North Yorkshire, Methodist Church (1833, altered 1879). Two additional views - 1, 2. SD 870 893. All © Howard Richter (2015). Link1. Link2. The former Inghamite/Sandemanian Chapel. According to the grade II listing, it dates from circa 1755, and has not been used as a chapel for a long time - indeed possibly before 1856, when the building is shown on the 6" map of that date, but it isn't marked as a chapel or place of worship. It's now the Village Institute. Two further views - 1, 2. SD 872 893. All © Howard Richter (2014). Link1 - see the Beyond London section. Link2.

Gayton le Marsh, Lincolnshire, the surviving churchyard of St. George. Despite only having been demolished in 1971, neither David or I have been able to find a photo on the net. The church was some distance from the local roads, and I haven't been able to convince myself that the site of the church is visible on Streetview either, because of intervening houses and hedges. TF 4250 8413. Link. The village also has a former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, at TF 4308 8471. It appears to now be in residential use. This source provides dates of 1894-1987. It also mentions two predecessors, of 1809 and 1837. The latter of these is this building at TF 4287 8445. When the new Chapel was built, this one became the Sunday School. I've not been able to identify the older chapel's location. All © David Regan (2020).

The 25" O.S. map of 1892-1914 shows a Primitive Methodist Chapel north of the village at TF 7433 1893. It's dated here to 1902, and was described as derelict in 1987. It's labelled as Methodist Chapel (disused) on a map of 1980-1. If it survives, it's completely overgrown in scrubby woodland, and not visible from the road. It stands/stood somewhere among the trees on the right in this Streeview from 2009.

George Nympton, Devon, 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).

Gifford, East Lothian, the Yester Parish Church. Jim Napier and James Denham advise that the Rev.

Glanton, Northumberland, St. Andrew, Anglican and U.R.C. NU 069 145. It dates to before 1895, when it is shown on an old map as Presbyterian Chapel (Scotch). On a visit in 2008, I could only find this one church, despite the OS map showing two. Also, Pevsner (revised edition, 2001) lists only the U.R.C. church, originally Presbyterian, but doesn't give it a dedication. GENUKI lists a St. Peter, but this Glanton newsletter from 2005 mentions the up-coming closure of this church. Presumably St. Peter has been demolished, and the now combined CoE and U.R.C. was re-named St. Andrew after 2005. Unless you know better.....   © Steve Bulman. Howard Richter has been doing some investigation, and advises that St. Peter appears to have been built as a Mission Room, in ca. 1896 (absent from 1895 map, present on 1897 version), at grid ref. NU 0713 1447. The 1976 map shows this as "St. Peter's Church (CofE)", and it still shows on the 1981-2 map. Strangely, the current on-line Ordnance Survey map still shows a church at this grid ref. You can also use this to orient the Google Earth aerial image to see what might be the church foundations.

Golden Green, Kent, possible church. Can you confirm? TQ 637 482. © Geoff Watt. Howard Richter has been researching this building, and advises that it is St. Mary's Mission Church, from St. Mary in Hadlow, about 2 miles away, dedicated in 1919. According to their website, the church still holds services, and also serves as a community hall. The Mission was preceded in the village by a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, which stood at about TQ 638 483. This shows on old maps from the 1908 edition, but not on the earlier 1897/8. It appears to have still been in use in 1961, but is not named, though still standing, and so presumably no longer in use as a church, on the 1961/2 edition. It was demolished before the 1983 map. Nos. 1 and 2 Chapel Cottages now stand on the site.
