In appearance perhaps of the 1960's or 1970's, I can't find it on any maps I have access to, and I've wandered along the road from Holbeach Clough to Saracen's Head on Streetview, and can't find it there either.

A map of 1962 marks this building as Church Room, just a short distance north of the Baptist Chapel.

A Baptist Church is marked on older maps at the western end of the village, at ST 6989 2373. A building (presumably a house) survives with the same footprint, though whether anything of the chapel survives is so far unknown. It can be seen on a Streetview of 2009 here. The National archives references a document pertaining to the chapel for the years 1814-1901, though it survived until later than this as it's marked as a church on the 1" O.S. map of
1958.

The same source also mentions an Independent Primitive Methodist Chapel of 1834, but I haven't been able to locate where it was/is. Old maps show a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel off Main Street at SK 6990 4696. Streetview has only managed a distant view, so I can't tell if it survives, but if it does it's probably the building behind the field and above the post box with its long axis parallel to the road, as seen here by Streetview in 2016.

SK 4245 1233. David Regan (2020). Link. The former Methodist Church was built as Wesleyan. The village Wikipedia entry provides dates for the two adjacent chapels, of 1831 for the smaller chapel at left, and 1891 for its larger neighbour. Both can be seen in Streetviews as they were when the church was still active - in 2016 here, and after closure and in use as offices, here, in 2019. The 25" O.S. map of 1929 shows a Baptist Church on Dennis Street at SK 4261 1262. Still standing (though scaffolded) in 2009, as seen here in a Streetview, it had been demolished and replaced by housing by the time of the next Streetview van visit in 2011. The 1929 25" map shows a Mission Room on Fairfield Road. Because of some uncertainty about which building is being indicated, it's not possible to give an exact grid reference - so circa SK 425 131, and today the site is perhaps under the road or the adjacent pavements as seen here on a 2017 Streetview. One last site is worth mentioning. The 25" map indicates St. James's Church (site of) off Dennis Street at SK 4272 1260. Assuming the map is accurate, the church stood among the trees to the left of the path in this 2011 Streetview. Its Genuki entry dates it to 1776,  the village Wikipedia entry says that it was preceded by a Chapel of Ease on Dennis Street, so perhaps on the same site.

Hursley, Hampshire, All Saints. This postcard (from Reg Dosell's Collection, previously in the "Unknown section) is clearly marked as Horsley Church, but I was unable to connect it to any of the several Horsley's around the country. Both Bill Davison and Janet Gimber have shown that it is of All Saints, Hursley. This link shows the church as re-built by John Keble, but the spire was removed and other changes made in 1959. A modern photo shows it looking more like the church it was before the Keble work was carried out.
