Coflein dates it to 1872 when it was re-built, replacing a chapel originally of 1809. SH 7638 6929. © Martin Briscoe. A Calvinistic Methodist Chapel is shown on O.S. maps at SH 7551 6986. There's an entry on Coflein for it, but it has no details. The chapel pre-dates a map of 1889, and was still active in the mid-20th century. It seems to now be in residential use - the building on the site was seen by Streetview in 2009. Whether anything of the chapel survives is unclear.
Llanbedrog, Gwynedd, St. Pedrog. An interior view, and a rather lovely window.
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.

A building with the same footprint can be seen on modern aerial views, but it can't be seen on Streetviews. Whatever it is it stands behind the left half of the short terrace seen by Streetview in 2011. Old maps also show an otherwise un-named Chap. on Abergele Road at SH 8997 7831. A Streetview from 2022 shows that it bears a sign saying Caersalem Chapel. A 2020 news story includes interior views of the converted . chapel, and Coflein dates it to 1890, on the site of earlier chapels.
Llanddwyn Island, Isle of Anglesey, the ruins of St. Dwynwen. Its Coflein entry dates it to the 16th century. The Wikipedia entry for the island says that the remains of earlier buildings have been found in archaeological investigations. SH 3869 6276. © Janet Gimber (2023). A map of 1901 shows, a short way south of the church, Llanddwyn Abbey (Benedictine) (Remains of), at SH 3865 6271. It's mentioned here, where there is a Lidar scan showing the monastic earthworks, but it seems to have escaped more general notice.

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.

The village also had a Free United Methodist Chapel on Kiln Hill, at TF 1998 8912. Genuki provides dates of 1857-1933.

Its My Primitive Methodists entry provides a closure date of 1965, but not of its building or opening. It certainly pre-dates 1887, when it appears on the earliest map I have access to. The Congregational Chapel appears on the same map. ST 9122 2280. Both © Chris Kippin (2020).
Ludworth, Co. Durham, the site of St. Andrew, destroyed by fire in the early 1980's. The street sign seen in the photo says St. Andrew's Court. The church, which was of wooden construction, was put up in 1902. NZ 360 414. © Martin Richter (2019). Photos of the church are available here and here. 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. The buildings in the area had been demolished by the late 1930's, and sports fields are now in their place. The chapel stood about halfway to the distant trees in this 2010 Streetview.

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.
