The Churches of Britain and Ireland
|Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire
A Baptist Chapel once stood on Beecroft Street at SE 2653 3549. The National Archives references documents pertaining to this church for the years 1907-32. It had been demolished before 2008 when Streetview made its first visit to the site.
Older O.S. maps mark a Congregational Chapel on Commercial Road, at SE 2635 3544. Evidently now demolished, it site was seen by Streetview in 2017. The boundary wall and gate piers look as if they are probably from the chapel.

Older maps mark a Chapel on Commercial Road, at SE 2648 3538. It was still marked on a map of 1953 but has since been demolished. It stood on a large site, and had a Sunday School behind it, fronting onto Sandford Road. I've been unable to discover its denomination. Housing now stands on the site, seen by Streetview in 2008.
