SH 3295 3155. All © Tim Hollinghurst (2019). Coflein entry. Grade II* listed. Howard Richter advises of three chapels nearby - the first is the Calvinistic Methodist Capel Peniel at SH 3217 3190. It can be seen on a 2016 Streetview here. The Coflein entry tells us that it was perhaps originally built in 1791, and re-built in 1866. Grade II listed. The second is the Wesleyan Methodist Rehoboth at SH 3221 3189. The Coflein entry gives dates of 1816, with re-builds or modifications in 1833, 1839 and 1871. Not visited by Streetview, other sources confirm that the building is still extant. Seion Independent Chapel stands at SH 3237 3195, and was seen by Streetview in 2009 and 2016, between which dates the building had been re-painted. The Coflein entry gives a building date of 1883.

Capel Hananeel (Congregational, 1826, re-built 1879). © Peter Morgan (2012). Although previously listed as possibly the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Howard Richter has shown that it is in fact the CiW Sunday School. It stands at SJ 0345 3715. It has a Coflein entry. © Peter Morgan (2012). Howard has also advised of some additional chapels - Capel Seion (Wesleyan) is located at SJ 0353 3709, and is a 1884 re-build of a chapel originally built in 1804. It has been converted to residential use. A 2016 Streetview is available here. An 1888 map shows a "Methodist Chapel (Calvinistic)" at SJ 0336 3695. This is possibly Capel Salem noted by Coflein here. If this identification is correct, then it was built in 1822, and re-built in 1880. Streetview shows a building at this site here, and here, the latter showing a pair of old gate piers. This is all rather tentative, so if you can confirm any of this, please let me know.

Llangammarch Wells, Powys, St. Camarch. Another view. Paul advises that the church has had an interesting history - the medieval church was said to be ruinous by the 1800's, and was replaced by a new church in 1850. Built in the Victorian Gothic style, it was never popular with the local people, and was described as “mean church on a abrupt eminence”. This was replaced by the present church in 1915-16, with the tower added in 1927. A carved medieval stone is set into the porch, which Paul suggests should be moved to somewhere better protected from the elements. SN 9350 4731. All © Paul Wood (2017). Coflein entry.

According to the Harrison & Harrison (Organ Builders) website, the organ was transferred to St. Aidan at Acomb, York, implying that the church had closed prior to the fire which destroyed it. A Primitive Methodist Chapel stood on Margaret Street at NZ 3624 4144. The site, as seen by the Streetview van in 2010, is now occupied by a bungalow. It seems to date from the mid-1890's, and the latest map I can find which labels it (as Meth. Ch.) is of 1951-2. The 1958-60 map shows what appears to be the same building as Warehouse. The village also had a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, also demolished. It stood at NZ 3610 4153, and was built at roughly the same time as the P.M. Chapel.

Lunds Church (North Yorkshire) stands in a very remote and isolated position about half a mile from the road between Kirkby Stephen and Moorcock Inn. I think the nearest settlement will be Aisgill, about 2¼ miles to the N.N.W. Built as a chapel of ease, its grade II listing dates it to the mid-18th century. Kevin Price advises that it came under the vicar of Hawes, at least as late as circa 1970. SD 7938 9455.
