The former United Methodist Free Church on Railway Street, now in secular use. SD 586 174. Mike Berrell (2010). The Rev. Martin Whiffen advised in 2017 that this church has been demolished, and a new "Youth Zone" building built on the site.

U.R.C. on Hollinshead Street, originally Independent Chapel, built 1792 and elevated 1877, as inscribed on a stone. Mike Berrell (2010). Link. The Rev. Martin Whiffen has advised that this building was originally much lower, and the building increased in height, and a gallery added. With hindsight, this was a bad move, as they have had structural problems since. The church is currently (2017) negotiating with the local council to sell the building. It will be demolished to make way for a car park for a shopping centre. A new U. R. C. is to be built, with the intention of it opening in 2018. Added 2022 - the preceding plan was abandoned, and the church repaired and refurbished, re-opening in 2020. Three interior views - 1, 2, 3, all Rev. Martin Whiffen.

Previously listed as a possible former chapel on Park Street, Mike's investigations (with the invaluable assistance of Joan Dickinson, Chair of the Chorley Historical Society) have established that this was a school building belonging to the Unitarian Chapel (see above). Now in use as a pre-school centre. SD 584 180. Mike Berrell (2010).
