Baptist Church. SP 504 754. Paul Brown. Link.

Christadelphian Hall. SP 500 754. Paul Brown.

Christian Fellowship Centre (Elim Pentecostal) on Cambridge Street. It looks as if it may have been Methodist or Congregational at some point - can you confirm?  SP 513 754. Paul Brown. Link. Howard Richter advises that this was Wesleyan Methodist. The original pre-1887 Mission Chapel was converted to be the Sunday School when the present building was erected on or before 1905, when it shows on a map of that year. A short way along the road, on the opposite side, stands St. John, a Mission from St. Andrew. Probably now closed, a 1954 photo of it is available here.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. SP 500 754. Paul Brown.

Evangelical Free Church. SP 507 753. Paul Brown.

The now-demolished Holy Trinity. Previously in the "Unknown" section, Barney Tyrwhitt-Drake wanted to put a name to the church in an old photo taken by a family member in 1865. Thanks to Phil Draper for the ID. He advises that this was a Scott church, and was demolished in 1983 despite a long campaign for its preservation. It was Grade A listed.
