Aylestone, Leicester - see Leicester

Bagworth, the site of Holy Rood. The original medieval church was demolished in 1968 because of subsidence associated with coal mining. It was replaced by a concrete building, but also incorporating some of the old fabric. This too has since been demolished, and the churchyard still has some surviving walls. The photo shows what seems to be a Norman arch encased in the later concrete. David Regan (2017). Link, which has illustrations and photos of both churches.
Bardon Hill, St. Peter. Graeme Harvey. Link. Separated from the town by the A511 stands Bardon Park Chapel. Dating from 1694, it was originally a Presbyterian meeting house. It's now used by the U.R.C. and Bardon Park Christian Fellowship. SK 459 119. Richard Roberts (2018). Link. Grade II listed.
Barkby, St. Mary. Two additional views - 1, 2. SK 6367 0986. All David Regan (2016). Another view, a window with unusual tracery, three of the interior - 1, 2, 3, two fine monuments - 1, 2, and the font, all
Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade I listed. The 25" O.S. map of 1903 marks a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at SK 6388 0961. This source dates a Wesleyan Chapel (but is it this one?) to 1822. This 2010 Streetview shows what I think is the former chapel (or site of it). The same source also mentions a Primitive Methodist Chapel, built no later than 1863, the congregation having previously met in a private house (so far unidentified). This source (includes photos) mentions a P.M. Chapel dated to 1886 (closing in the 1920's), so either there were two P.M. Chapels, or one of these sources is in error. SK 6394 0960.
Barkestone-le-Vale, St. Peter and St. Paul. Old O.S. maps label this as St. John the Baptist. SK 7778 3494. David Regan (2011). Grade II* listed.
Barlestone, St. Giles. Another view. Both David Regan (2016). Grade II listed.
Barrow-upon-Soar, Holy Trinity. From an old postcard (franked 1902), in Steve Bulman's Collection. Note that the text on the postcard is for Barrow-on-Soar, and that the dedication is listed as "Trinity Church". A modern view. SK 5764 1758. Eirian Evans. And another recent photo, Christine Denton. Link. The Baptist Church on Beveridge Street dates from 1875, a replacement for an earlier chapel of 1822.
SK 5764 1740. David Regan (2020). Link. The Methodist Church on North Street was built as Primitive Methodist in 1911. It stands on the site of its predecessor of 1818. SK 5767 1767. David Regan (2020). Link1. Link2, which also has a photo of the 1818 building. The former St. Alban (R.C., 1839-1989). SK 5782 1763. David Regan (2020).

Belton, St. John the Baptist. Another view. SK 4477 2082. Both David Regan (2016). Grade II* listed. A Baptist Church stands at the junction of Gracedieu Lane and Long Street. Its date-stone says "G.B. Chapel Erected 1813", G.B. being General Baptist.
A 2008 Streetview. SK 4456 2042. David Regan (2020). The village also had a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Long Street (SK 4463 2069), which can be seen on a 2019 Streetview here. The Belton Genuki entry says that the Wesleyans were present in the village before 1849, but whether the present building dates from that time is so far unknown.
Billesdon, St. John the Baptist.  George Weston. An old engraving from "Histories and Antiquities of the County of Leicester" by John Nichols, published between 1795 and 1810. From George Weston's Collection. Another view, two interiors - 1, 2, the pulpit and the font, all   Dennis Harper (2015). Another view, David Regan (2016). Link. Grade II* listed. Baptist Chapel.

Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade II listed. The village had a United Methodist Chapel at the junction of White Horse Lane and Front Street. It pre-dates a map of 1885-7. The site is now a small car parking area, seen by Streetview in 2019. SK 5971 0893. The Methodist Church stands on Wanlip Lane and The Crossways. It was seen by Streetview in 2016. According to this source it was preceded on the same site by a United Methodist Chapel of the 1920's. Link. St. Theresa (R.C.) on Front Street, as seen by Streetview in 2016. The history page of the church website dates it to 1987-8, and mentions a predecessor on Wanlip Lane of 1940-1. It includes a photo of it, and advises that it remains in use as a nursery - seen here on a Streetview from 2021. Birstall village hall on Birstall Road and School Lane is the meeting place of the Independent Baptist Church. It was seen by Streetview in 2019. The church website says that they have also met in Cedars Academy on Wanlip Lane - seen here by Streetview in 2016.

The ruins of St. Michael. George Weston. An engraving of St. Michael from "Histories and Antiquities of the County of Leicester" by John Nichols, published between 1795 and 1810. From George Weston's Collection. An "interior" view of the doorway of St. Michael, and an information sign, both Michael John York.

Chris Stafford (2015). Link. Grade II* listed. A United Free Methodist Chapel is marked on the 25" O.S. map of 1903 at the southern end of the village, at SK 8109 2922. The Streetview van hasn't been along "The Rock", so I don't know if it survives, and I can't find a photo or further information on the net.

Buckminster, St. John the Baptist. SK 8791 2309. Shirley Beaumont. Thanks to Mike Berrell for confirmation of the identification. Another view, David Regan. The other building in David's photo is a mausoleum, which is also listed, as grade II*. Church - grade I listed. The village also had a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Back Street, at SK 8789 2278. I think the house at the centre of this 2009 Streetview is the site of the chapel, and it seems to have the same footprint, but it's not obvious if any fabric from the chapel survives. It was still active in 1959, as it's labelled as a Meth. Chap. on a map of that year. It's not so-labelled on a map of 1976.
Burbage, St. Catherine. Link. Wesleyan Chapel. Congregational Chapel. All  George Weston.

David Regan (2020). A Primitive Methodist Chapel once stood to the south of the village, at SK 4378 0996. Apart from the fact that it was built before the 1903 6" O.S. map was published, I've been unable to find out anything further about it. Where it stood can be seen here in a 2009 Streetview.

It has a date-stone which says General Baptist Chapel Re-built 1880; this source (at the bottom of the page) suggests that its earlier incarnation dates back at least as far back as 1842. SK 5042 2195. David Regan (2020). Link. The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Dovecote Street now serves as the village hall. It has a date-stone for 1864. The My Wesleyan Methodists entry says that there was at least one older chapel dating from 1791. SK 5031 2226. David Regan (2020). There's a small chapel marked on the 6" O.S. map of 1901, just north of the parish church on Green Hill, at SK 5025 2246. It can be seen on a 2016 Streetview. This source (click on the photo) identifies it as a United Methodist Chapel of 1847; from 1908 it was St. Aloysius (R.C.), and is now in residential use.
Heather, St. John the Baptist. Interior view. Founded in the early 13th century by the Knights Hospitaller, parts of the preceptory are thought to underlie the adjacent manor house. Both  Simon Nickerson. Link.

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.

The 1904 6" map shows a Chapel on what the 25" map labels as Reform Road, which ran between High Street and Melbourne Road. The road itself is (today) just a narrow path - the Chapel stood on the right-hand side somewhere behind the red brick building, seen in a 2011 Streetview here. SK 4055 0994. Lastly, the cemetery on Curzon Street has a Mortuary Chapel at SK 4121 1058. It can be seen on a Streetview here.

The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (1854, replacing an earlier chapel) now serves as a Community Centre. SK 3346 1217. David Regan (2020). The 6" map marks an R.C. Chapel on Bosworth Road at SK 3373 1207. It stood beneath the modern housing seen here in a 2012 Streetview, and is commemorated in the adjacent side road St. Charles Croft. The present Catholic Church is St. Charles Borromeo. The Diocesan Website has a pin marking the church as being on Pickerings Avenue, off Bosworth Road. The latest (2012) Streeview doesn't go down Pickerings Avenue, but looking down it from Bosworth Road doesn't reveal any candidates. The map on the church's own website has a pin for a church hall and primary school, but not for the church itself. So was it built on Pickerings Avenue after 2012? The My Primitive Methodists website has an entry for Meesham (Measham) P.M. Chapel on Leicester Road, now demolished. It dates it to 1860, and says it was still active in 1961. The 1904 6" map locates it at SK 3362 1230. Housing was built on the site, which can be seen here on a 2010 Streetview. The same 6" map also notices another Meth. Chap. on Navigation Street. In this 2010 Streetview, the chapel stood on what are now the nearest few parking bays at the left, perhaps extending across the wall into the adjoining small garage. Could this have been the predecessor of the Wesleyan Chapel, as mentioned above?

Baptist Church on Meeting Street. SK 5579 1622. David Regan (2020). Link, with a comprehensive history here). Grade II listed. The 1903 25" O.S. map shows a Chapel on High Street, fairly close to the church. Another map of 1919 marks it as "W.M. Chapel", so Wesleyan. According to this pdf document, which has a photo, it was built circa 1819, and has been demolished. It stood at SK 5610 1650. It was succeeded by a new chapel in 1907, close to its predecessor, and it can be seen on a 2018 Streetview here. It has since been converted into flats, and the local Methodists now meet in St. Bartholomew. The same pdf document also identifies another chapel on Meeting Street, which shows on the 1904 6" map at SK 5589 1630. It was a Primitive Methodist Chapel, of 1820-1923, and is now in residential use. Its 2017 Streetview can be seen here (the blue house). Again, referring to the pdf document, two Wesleyan Reform Chapels are mentioned, the first was a house on Meeting Street (precise location not known), which was used from 1850-1855. Its successor of 1855 stands on School Lane, and can be seen on a 2017 Streetview here. It later became a United Methodist Free Church.
