Rawdon on Wikipedia.

Cragg Baptist Chapel used to stand off Micklefield Lane at SE 2039 3950.  Streetview saw its site in 2023. This source says it was the third Baptist in the village, each on different sites, and another source has photos and illustrations of all three chapels. It's dated to 1892-1972. There is a photo of the interior of the third chapel, which proves that an interior from Judy Flynn's collection in the Unknown section is of this chapel. It was identified by Janet Gimber.
