The Churches of Britain and Ireland
Bay Villa is a former Glanton Brethren Meeting Room. Seen here (the building with the chimney) by Streetview in 2016, it has a plaque with a little history, © Alan Marsden (2021). Kevin Price advises that the Brethren left in about 1980. SD 4087 7796. Grade II listed.
Grange Fell Church, which sits at the western edge of the town, dates from 1907. Older maps mark a church room on the same site, and this source dates it to 1898. It can be seen here in a Streetview of 2011. SD 3999 7777. Link.
