There was at one time a Primitive Methodist Chapel on Chapel Lane, at TF 1728 0320. Pre-dating a map of 1901, it was closed before 1950, although the building itself seems to have survived until then. Demolished later, the house on the site was seen by Streetview in 2009. This source dates it to 1860.
St. John the Baptist on Church Street and Barn Close. TF 1698 0315. Robin Peel.
 Link. Grade I listed. The churchyard war memorial is listed as grade II.
The Way Family Church (2023 Streetview, where it's labelled as Assemblies of God) is on The Green. The right hand part of the building was originally a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel. There's a date-stone above the door which says (I think) 1833. TF 1734 0339.
