Cemetery Chapel. TL 9108 4872. Steve Bulman (2005).

The My Primitive Methodists website has an entry for a Primitive Methodist Chapel in the village. It was in what is now a National Trust property (the Guildhall), converted from a pre-existing half-timbered building in 1861, and seen here in a Streetview from 2016. TL 9162 4930.

St. Peter & St. Paul. TL 9128 4902. Mark Turbott. Another view, Steve Bulman (2005). Three interior views - 1, 2, 3, all Simon Edwards (2012). The monument to the Reverend Copinger, rector 1578 to 1633, and the parclose screen enclosing the remains of Thomas Spring III the "Rich Clothier" and his wife Alice, both from old postcards in Christopher Skottowe's Collection.

The village used to have a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, on Bolton Street, at TL 9173 4933. Its Genuki entry dates the foundation of the congregation to 1811. It was built with its long axis parallel to the road, with its entrance porch to the west. In this 2009 Streetview, it extended from where the property is at the right, and in line with it, roughly up to the yellow-painted house.
