Cross Hills Methodist Church on Rochdale Road.
Evidently a fairly recent building, the 1907 25" O.S. map marks a Wesleyan Chapel on the same site. SE 0880 2129. David Regan (2020). Link.

There is a surviving former Primitive Methodist Chapel (the most distant building) on The Carriage Drive, at SE 0928 2156. Some more photos are available here, and the rear of the chapel can be seen on a 2015 Streetview, apparently undergoing some conversion or building works. David Regan (2020). Link.

St. Thomas (1860). SE 0853 2135. Elaine Hindson. Another view, David Regan (2020). Link. Grade II listed.

A United Free Methodist Chapel is marked on old maps on Sunny Bank Road at SE 0872 2125. Now demolished, housing has been built on the site, as seen here on a 2019 Streetview. The low garden wall marks the line of the front of the chapel.

The former Wall Nook Primitive Methodist Chapel (at Greetland Wall Nook, about a mile and a half west of Greetland). It has a defaced date-stone, but the date is still visible - 1881. SE 0650 2101. An old photograph of the interior is available here. Both David Regan (2020).

The former Baptist Church (1868-2014) at the junction of Calder Street and Alfred Street has been converted into flats.
The scrollwork "date-stone" is rather pleasing. SE 0977 2123. Both David Regan (2020).
The redundant St. John the Evangelist. Its
grade II listing dates it to 1880. SE 0981 2126. David Regan (2020).
The former United Methodist Chapel (1865-1972) on Middle Dean Street and Green Lane was apparently commonly known as Middle for Diddle Chapel. Its date-stone.
