The Churches of Britain and Ireland
Hope Strict Baptist Chapel. The church website advises a building date of 1859, when it was founded by a gentleman called Mr. Mehew, who had left Rehoboth (which he had also founded, and for which see below). TL 2217 3662. © Les Needham (2010).
The cemetery on Mill Lane has a Mortuary Chapel which can be seen on a Streetview of 2016. TL 2241 3705.
A Primitive Methodist Chapel (known as Brook Street Methodist after the union) once stood on Brook Street at TL 2148 3653. Its My Primitive Methodist entry provides a foundation date of 1847, with a re-build in 1869. Whether the earlier chapel was on the same Brook Street site isn't clear. Closed in 1973, it was subsequently demolished - no later than 1984. Its frontage is approximately marked by the brick wall seen here by the Streetview van in 2009.
The site of Rehoboth Calvinist (later Strict Baptist) Chapel, on Church Road as seen by the Streetview van in 2009. Zooming in reveals the date plaque, which says Rehoboth Chapel stood here 1841-1986. This source implies that it was closed two years before its demolition. TL 2191 3679.
