A Gospel Hall shows on a map of 1974, on the east side of Northfield. A 2009 Streetview shows the site, the change in colour of the roadway marking the line of the frontage of the building.

The Methodist Church (1845) off West Street shows on older maps as Wesleyan. The U.R.C. congregation moved here when their church was closed, and the Methodist Church has been re-named as West Street Church. ST 4895 2855. Graeme Harvey. Link. Grade II listed.

A Mission Hall is shown on the 25" O.S. map of 1887, at ST 4837 2867. Later labelled as a Salvation Army barracks, its site can be seen here on a 2015 Streetview. The bungalow frontage is about in the same place as that of the chapel, which stretched quite a long way back, its long axis at right angles to the road.
